Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the health of vaccinated versus unvaccinated pediatric populations. Methods: Using data from three medical practices in the United States with children born between November 2005 and June 2015, vaccinated children were compared to unvaccinated children during the first year of life for later incidence of developmental delays, asthma, ear infections and gastrointestinal disorders. All diagnoses utilized International Classification of Diseases–9…

Health effects in vaccinated versus unvaccinated children, with covariates for breastfeeding status and type of birth
Vaccination is the predominant public health practice utilized by nations to prevent the spread of communicable illnesses. In the United States, fully vaccinated children receive 26 vaccine doses by
Adverse events following measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine: an independent perspective on Italian pharmacovigilance data
TLDR
The data suggest that passive pharmacovigilance is utterly inadequate to document the real incidence of serious AEFIs and that current methods of assessing causality may be questioned.
Adverse events following measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine: an independent perspective on Italian pharmacovigilance data.
TLDR
The data suggest that passive pharmacovigilance is utterly inadequate to document the real incidence of serious AEFIs and that current methods of assessing causality may be questioned.
Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination
TLDR
The overall results may indicate that the unvaccinated pediatric patients in this practice are healthier overall than the vaccinated, and the net public health effects of whole-population vaccination and with respect for informed consent on human health are compelling.
Adverse events following measles-mumps-rubella- varicella vaccine: an independent perspective on Italian pharmacovigilance data [version 2; peer review: 2 approved]
TLDR
The data suggest that passive pharmacovigilance is utterly inadequate to document the real incidence of serious AEFIs and that current methods of assessing causality may be questioned.
Multiple Vaccinations and the Enigma of Vaccine Injury
TLDR
It is proposed that, in susceptible persons, multiple vaccinations activate the retinoid cascade and trigger apoptotic hepatitis, leading to cholestatic liver dysfunction, in which stored vitamin A compounds enter the circulation in toxic concentrations; this induces endogenous forms of hypervitaminosis A.
Public perception on COVID-19 vaccination intention
To resolve the health crisis caused by coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Indonesian government is trying to implement a mandatory vaccination policy for all Indonesians. It was just that the
Anthroposophic Medicine: A Short Monograph and Narrative Review—Foundations, Essential Characteristics, Scientific Basis, Safety, Effectiveness and Misconceptions
TLDR
An objective and comprehensive analysis of anthroposophic medicine finds it provocative, stimulating and potentially fruitful as an integrative system for whole person care, including under-recognized life processes and psychospiritual aspects of human beings.

Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12- year old U.S. children
TLDR
Vaccinations have prevented millions of infectious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths among U.S. children, yet the long-term health outcomes of the vaccination schedule remain uncertain and vaccinated children were found to have a higher rate of allergies and NDD than unvaccinated homeschool children.
Hepatitis B triple series vaccine and developmental disability in US children aged 1–9 years
TLDR
Boys in United States who were vaccinated with the triple series Hepatitis B vaccine, during the time period in which vaccines were manufactured with thimerosal, were more susceptible to developmental disability than were unvaccinated boys.
Risk of Nontargeted Infectious Disease Hospitalizations Among US Children Following Inactivated and Live Vaccines, 2005–2014
TLDR
Lower risk of NTI disease hospitalizations from age 16 through 24 months is found among children whose last vaccine received was live compared with inactivated vaccine, as well as concurrent receipt compared withInactivated vaccine.

TLDR
A similarly increased risk of IS is found after both vaccines, but the balance of benefits and risks at population level was highly favorable, a finding likely to extend to other settings despite varying incidence of IS and potentially higher morbidity and mortality from both gastroenteritis and IS.
Intussusception risk after rotavirus vaccination in U.S. infants.
TLDR
RV5 was associated with approximately 1.5 (95% CI, 0.2 to 3.2) excess cases of intussusception per 100,000 recipients of the first dose of RV5, and the secondary analysis suggested a potential risk, although the study of RV1 was underpowered.
A randomized controlled trial of the effect of pertussis vaccines on atopic disease.
TLDR
There seems to be little reason to withhold pertussis vaccination from infants, irrespective of family history of allergy, and there was a positive association between whooping cough and asthma by 2 1/2 years of age.
A population-based cohort study of undervaccination in 8 managed care organizations across the United States.
TLDR
Examination of patterns and trends of undervaccination in children aged 2 to 24 months and health care utilization rates between undervaccinated and age-appropriately vaccinated children concluded that under vaccination appears to be an increasing trend.
Association Between Influenza Infection and Vaccination During Pregnancy and Risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
There was no association between maternal influenza infection anytime during pregnancy and increased ASD risk, and the findings do not call for changes in vaccine policy or practice, but do suggest the need for additional studies on maternal influenza vaccination and autism.
Immunization and symptoms of atopic disease in children: results from the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood.
TLDR
International variations in childhood atopic diseases are unlikely to be explained by variations in immunization.
Hepatitis B Vaccination Associated With Higher Female Than Male Mortality in Guinea-Bissau: An Observational Study
TLDR
Comparisons suggested changes in the mortality pattern after the introduction of HBV, particularly for girls, in areas with high mortality, HBV may affect girls’ and boys’ susceptibility to infections differently.
