This Review updates the scientific evidence assessing possible causal associations of adverse events following immunisation (AEFI) compiled in the 2012 report from the Institute of Medicine and the 2014 report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. For 12 of 46 AEFI examined, a causal relationship has been established with at least one vaccine currently routinely recommended to the general USA population: anaphylaxis, arthralgia or arthritis (mild, acute, and transient, not… Expand
Safety of vaccines used for routine immunization in the United States: An updated systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A systematic review of the safety of vaccines recommended for children, adults, and pregnant women in the United States found few associations of vaccines and serious key adverse events; however, rare events are challenging to study. Expand
Immunization practices and risk of anaphylaxis: a current update, comprehensive of COVID-19 vaccination data
TLDR
An updated report on the correlation between vaccines and anaphylaxis and the related risk in the population is provided and every suspected contraindication has to be deepened to maximize effectiveness and safety profile. Expand
COVID-19 Vaccine in Pregnant and Lactating Women: A Review of Existing Evidence and Practice Guidelines
TLDR
The available data on the efficacy and safety profile of COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant and lactating women are summarized, the challenges of vaccine hesitancy are reviewed, and recommendations for healthcare providers are included. Expand
The critical role of background rates of possible adverse events in the assessment of COVID-19 vaccine safety
TLDR
Two key steps for post-introduction safety evaluation of COVID-19 vaccines are described: Defining a dynamic list of Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) and establishing background rates for these AESI. Expand
The coronavirus disease 2019 vaccine in pregnancy: risks, benefits, and recommendations
TLDR
The COVID-19 vaccine should be offered to pregnant women after discussing lack of safety data, with preferential administration for those at highest risk for severe infection, until safety and efficacy of these novel vaccines are validated. Expand
An Updated Review of SARS-CoV-2 Vaccines and the Importance of Effective Vaccination Programs in Pandemic Times
TLDR
In the present review, some aspects involved in accomplishing a successful vaccination program are addressed, in addition to the importance of vaccination in a pandemic in the face of unwillingness, conspiracy theories, or a lack of information among the public. Expand
Immunosuppression and immunization: Vaccination in pediatric patients with neuromuscular diseases treated with steroids or immune-modulating drugs.
TLDR
With just a few exceptions, vaccines are safe in this group of patients and they should receive the same immunizations and according to the same schedule, as all children. Expand
Anaphylaxis After the Covid-19 Vaccine in a Patient With Cholinergic Urticaria
TLDR
It is concluded that patients with mast cell disorders or anaphylaxis after their first Covid-19 immunization will benefit from referral to an allergist since receipt of their second Covid the 19 immunization may be possible. Expand
Abelmoschus Manihot L as Fever Reducing (Adverse Event Following Immunization) After Dtp- Hb-Hib Vaccine
Fever is a common clinical complaint for toddler as well as a frequently reported Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI) after DTP-HB-Hib vaccine administration. Commonly, the parent used aExpand
Update on Influenza Vaccines: Needs and Progress.
TLDR
Current influenza vaccines are reviewed, safety concerns are addressed, the need for newer influenza vaccines of higher efficacy is addressed, and efforts are discussed to create broadly protective, universal influenza vaccines. Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Safety of Vaccines Used for Routine Immunization in the United States.
TLDR
Evidence was insufficient to make conclusions regarding whether several routinely recommended vaccines are associated with serious conditions such as multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis; however, important factors must be taken into account when determining whether studies are warranted.

Assessment of causality of individual adverse events following immunization (AEFI): a WHO tool for global use.
TLDR
A tool developed for causality assessment of individual AEFIs that includes a checklist that systematically guides users to gather available information to feed a decision algorithm and a decision support algorithm that assists the assessors to come to a classification of the individual AEFI. Expand
International Consensus (ICON): allergic reactions to vaccines
TLDR
This document provides comprehensive and internationally accepted guidelines and access to on-line documents to help practitioners around the world identify allergic reactions following immunization. Expand
Adverse Effects of Vaccines
TLDR
While no vaccine is 100 percent safe, very few adverse events are shown to be caused by vaccines, and the evidence shows that vaccines do not cause several conditions. Expand
Vaccine administration and the development of immune thrombocytopenic purpura in children
TLDR
The available data clearly indicate that ITP is very rare and the only vaccine for which there is a demonstrated cause-effect relationship is the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine that can occur in 1 to 3 children every 100,000 vaccine doses. Expand
Algorithm to assess causality after individual adverse events following immunizations.
TLDR
A standardized algorithm to assist in collecting and interpreting data, and to help assess causality after individual AEFI is developed to assist with educational efforts to improve the collection of key information on AEFI and provide a platform for teaching about causality assessment. Expand
Association between Guillain-Barré syndrome and influenza A (H1N1) 2009 monovalent inactivated vaccines in the USA: a meta-analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis of data from the adverse event monitoring project to ascertain whether influenza A (H1N1) 2009 monovalent inactivated vaccines used in the USA increased the risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome found a modest risk, consistent with previous estimates of the disorder after seasonal influenza vaccination.
