In 1900, for every 1,000 babies born in the United States, 100 would die before their first birthday, often due to infectious diseases. Today, vaccines exist for many viral and bacterial diseases. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, passed in 1986, was intended to bolster vaccine research and development through the federal coordination of vaccine initiatives and to provide relief to vaccine manufacturers facing financial burdens. The legislation also intended to address concerns about… 

Figures from this paper

Simply put: Vaccination saves lives
TLDR
The impact in the United States of immunization against nine vaccine-preventable diseases, including smallpox and a complication of one of those diseases, congenital rubella syndrome, showing representative annual numbers of cases in the 20th century compared with 2016 reported cases.
Safety of Vaccines Used for Routine Immunization of US Children: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Evidence that some vaccines are associated with serious AEs is found; however, these events are extremely rare and must be weighed against the protective benefits that vaccines provide.
Vaccine Development and Safety
TLDR
Advances in new sciences such as genomics, structural biology, novel adjuvant formulations, live vector vaccines, and computational studies have led to more detailed understanding of microbes and the host immune response and offer great promise in the design of future generation of effective and safe vaccines.
Vaccinations and Autoimmune Diseases
TLDR
No mechanisms have been demonstrated that could explain the correlation between vaccination and the development of autoimmune diseases, and epidemiological studies do not support the hypothesis that vaccines cause systemic autoimmune diseases.

Adverse Events Associated with Childhood Vaccines: Evidence Bearing on Causality
TLDR
This volume provides the most thorough literature review available about links between common childhood vaccines--tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps, polio, Haemophilus influenzae b, and hepatitis B--and specific types of disorders or death.
Immunization Safety Review: Multiple Immunizations and Immune Dysfunction
TLDR
The Immunization Safety Review Committee reviewed the evidence regarding the hypothesis that multiple immunizations increase the risk for immune dysfunction and found that the epidemiological evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between multiple immunization and increased risk for infections and for type 1 diabetes.
Immunization Safety Review : Vaccines and Autism
  • Medicine
  • 2004
TLDR
This eighth report from the committee examines the hypothesis that vaccines, specifically the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and thimerosal-containing vaccines, are associated with autism.
A comparison of serious adverse reactions to whole cell and acellular pertussis vaccines in South Australia
TLDR
The administered doses were calculated by multiplying the doses distributed to vaccine providers in SA during the study period by the percentage of vaccine coverage, and the adverse reactions reported were received.
Adverse events following immunization with DTP vaccine.
TLDR
Recommendations by advisory groups in the United States that any infant or child with a personal history of convulsions should be thoroughly evaluated before initiating or continuing immunization with pertussis vaccine are led to recent recommendations.
A Clinical Study to Assess the Safety and Immunogenicity of Attenuated Measles Vaccine Administered Intranasally to Healthy Adults
TLDR
Safety, reactogenicity, and viral shedding were not significantly different in the two study groups, but immunogenicity was markedly lower in the group of volunteers that received vaccine via the experimental intranasal route.
Risk of anaphylaxis after vaccination of children and adolescents.
TLDR
Patients and health care providers can be reassured that vaccine-associated anaphylaxis is a rare event and providers should be prepared to provide immediate medical treatment should it occur.
Adverse Events Associated with Childhood Vaccines: Evidence Bearing on Causality

    The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine

TLDR
Key findings include evidence favoring rejection of causal linkage between encephalopathy, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) or infantile spasms and DT or Td (or T separately) and between early onset H. influenzae b disease and related conjugate vaccines.
Immunization Safety Review: SV40 Contamination of Polio Vaccine and Cancer
TLDR
It is concluded that the evidence was inadequate to conclude whether or not the contaminated polio vaccine caused cancer, and the biological evidence supporting the theory that SV40-contamination of polio vaccines could contribute to human cancers is supported.
Immunization Safety Review: Influenza Vaccines and Neurological Complications
TLDR
The Immunization Safety Review committee reviewed the data on influenza vaccine and neurological conditions and concluded that the evidence favored rejection of a causal relationship between influenza vaccines and exacerbation of multiple sclerosis.
