BACKGROUND Vaccines are among the safest medical products in use today. Hundreds of millions of vaccinations are administered in the United States each year. Serious adverse reactions are uncommon. However, temporally associated deaths can occur following vaccination. Our aim was to characterize main causes of death among reports submitted to the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a spontaneous vaccine safety surveillance system. METHODS We searched VAERS for US reports of…

Safety Monitoring of mRNA Vaccines Administered During the Initial 6 Months of the U.S. COVID-19 Vaccination Program: Reports to Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) and v-safe

Safety data from >298 million doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine administered in the first 6 months of the U.S. vaccination program show the majority of reported adverse events were mild and short in duration, lower than expected background rates by age group.

Vaccination and 30-Day Mortality Risk in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults

Risk of death was not increased during the 30 days after vaccination, and no deaths were found to be causally associated with vaccination.

Loss of confidence in vaccines following media reports of infant deaths after hepatitis B vaccination in China.

The HBV vaccine event resulted in the suspension of a safe vaccine, which was associated with a decline of parental confidence, and refusal of vaccination, and loss of confidence that is difficult to recover.

Sudden Infant Death After Vaccination: Survey of Forensic Autopsy Files.

Investigation of vaccination-related details and postmortem findings for 57 cases of sudden death in children 2 years or younger revealed pneumonia and upper respiratory infection as contributing to death in their cases, and judgment of the disorders as truly related to vaccination is difficult.

Neonatal deaths after hepatitis B vaccine: the vaccine adverse event reporting system, 1991-1998.

Few neonatal deaths following HepB vaccination have been reported, despite the use of at least 86 million doses of pediatric vaccine given in the United States since 1991, and data suggest that HepB immunization is not causing a clear increase in Neonatal deaths.

Deaths following vaccination: What does the evidence show?

Understanding vaccine safety information from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is useful in detecting adverse events related to vaccines and most recently was used for enhanced reporting of adverse events in the national smallpox immunization campaign.

Probability of Coincident Vaccination in the 24 or 48 Hours Preceding Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Death in Australia

The probabilities of vaccination by age estimated in this study can be applied to estimate the probability of a vaccination encounter for children who have experienced any unusual medical condition or death, when these occurrences are known to be unrelated to vaccination.

The decline of the age-adjusted death rate to a record low value for the United States, and the increase in life expectancy to arecord high value of 78.7 years, are consistent with long-term trends in mortality.

Lack of Association Between Hepatitis B Birth Immunization and Neonatal Death: A Population-Based Study From the Vaccine Safety Datalink Project

A relationship betweenHBV and neonatal death was not identified and a plausible causal or temporal relationship between HBV administration and death for the 22 vaccinated neonates who died unexpectedly was unable to be identified.
