The question of a connection between vaccination and autoimmune illness (or phenomena) is surrounded by controversy. A heated debate is going on regarding the causality between vaccines, such as measles and anti-hepatitis B virus (HBV), and multiple sclerosis (MS). Brain antibodies as well as clinical symptoms have been found in patients vaccinated against those diseases. Other autoimmune illnesses have been associated with vaccinations. Tetanus toxoid, influenza vaccines, polio vaccine, and… 

Tables from this paper

BCG immunisation and the `Trojan Horse' phenomenon of vaccination
TLDR
The issue of autoimmune manifestations, or disease, following various vaccines has been discussed in several articles, both case reports and reviews and the presence of autoantibodies in their sera is testimony to the fact that an autoimmune reaction occurs even if it does not manifest clinically.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VACCINATION AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES
TLDR
A potential correlation between vaccines and autoimmune diseases cannot be definitely ruled out and should be carefully explored during the development of new candidate vaccines.
Vaccination and rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
This editorial centres the discussion on the possible connection between hepatitis B vaccination and RA on the basis of reports of the onset of chronic autoimmune disease and, in particular, of RA.
Vaccination and rheumatic diseases: Is there still a dilemma?
TLDR
Considering the few available studies, influenza, pneumococcal, and HBV vaccines seem to be safe and immunogenic in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and the effect of TNFα blocking therapies on human immune responses to vaccination is discussed.
Vaccination and autoimmune diseases: is prevention of adverse health effects on the horizon?
TLDR
The possible underlying mechanisms of autoimmune reactions following vaccinations are discussed and cases of autoimmune diseases that have been correlated with vaccination are reviewed to review the direct associations between vaccines and autoimmune conditions, and the biological mechanisms behind them.
Development of autoimmune diseases after vaccination.
TLDR
2 further cases of autoimmune diseases appearing immediately after vaccination are described: giant cell arteritis that appeared after an influenza vaccine, and rheumatoid arthritis that was detected after immunization with an influenzavaccine and tetanus toxoid.
Vaccination and systemic lupus erythematosus: the bidirectional dilemmas
TLDR
The possible link between vaccines and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), namely two aspects of this inter-relationship: the occurrence of SLE following vaccination and outcome of immunization of known SLE patients.
Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: who might be at risk?
Vaccines and autoimmunity
TLDR
The various aspects of the causal and temporal interactions between vaccines and autoimmune phenomena are discussed, as well as the possible mechanisms by which different components of vaccines might induce autoimmunity.

Vaccine-induced autoimmunity.
TLDR
The data summarized here suggest that some vaccines may in rare cases induce autoimmune disorders and the risk-benefit ratio clearly leans towards the advantages of infectious disease prevention.
A Shadow Falls on Hepatitis B Vaccination Effort
TLDR
Vaccine safety officials interviewed by Science say they've seen no evidence that autoimmune diseases are appearing at a higher rate among vaccinated people, Nevertheless, several groups are seeking compensation from governments and manufacturers or demanding an end to mandatory vaccination.
Infection, autoimmunity and autoimmune disease.
TLDR
It has been found that modulation of autoimmunity to HSP is one way to prevent autoimmune disease and even treatment of autoimmune diseases by immunization with heat shock protein appears feasible.
Adverse events associated with childhood vaccines other than pertussis and rubella. Summary of a report from the Institute of Medicine.
TLDR
The report examined putative serious adverse consequences associated with administration of diphtheria and tetanus toxoids; measles, mumps, and measles-mumps-rubella vaccines; oral polio vaccine and inactivated polio vaccine; hepatitis B vaccines; and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccines and found that the evidence established causality.
Influenza vaccination in patients with rheumatic diseases. Safety and efficacy.
TLDR
The safety and efficacy of influenza vaccination were studied in 32 healthy volunteers and in 62 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and other rheumatic diseases and administration of these vaccines was safe in these patients with stable disease and induced antibody responses in most individuals.
INTENSIVE IMMUNIZATION OF MAN. EVALUATION OF POSSIBLE ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES.
TLDR
The increasing list of antigens recommended for the routine immunization of human beings plus the likelihood that the number of such agents will continue to grow indefinitely as new vaccines are developed has raised the question of whether repeated immunization produces adverse effects in man.
Influenzal vaccine response in systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
In this group of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, who were either in remission or had mild-to-moderate disease activity, killed influenzal vaccination caused no apparent worsening of disease activity.
Systemic lupus erythematosus following hepatitis B vaccine.
TLDR
It is believed that vaccination can induce an immune stimulation that may reveal or trigger a latent autoimmune genetic predisposition and LED should now be added to the list of rare recombinant hepatitis B vaccine side-effects.
[Cutaneous lupus erythematosus and buccal aphthosis after hepatitis B vaccination in a 6-year-old child].
TLDR
Under chloroquine therapy, the cutaneous manifestations of lupus erythematosus disappeared quickly and those of buccal aphthosis improved and an individual predisposition seems very likely.
