The Pediatric Society has provided evidence that vaccines do not cause autism, asthma and other serious diseases.

Previously, 47 AEFIs were studied, it was believed that it was just so much the consequences of immunization of the population.

However, in practice, a causal relationship was established only for 12. All others are not related to vaccination.

List of confirmed adverse reactions:
1. Anaphylaxis (allergic reaction).
2. Arthritis (mild, acute, transient and non-chronic).
3. Deltoid bursitis due to an incorrectly administered vaccine.
4. Disseminated varicella after vaccine against it, occurring only (!) In people with immunodeficiency.
5. Encephalitis.
6. Febrile seizures.
7. Guillain-Barre syndrome.
8. Hepatitis, occurring only (!) In people with immunodeficiency after the varicella vaccine (and only after it).
9. Shingles.
10. Immune thrombocytopenic purpura.
11. Faint.
12. Meningitis.

Most of these effects are extremely rare and are almost always associated with the presence of immunodeficiency, or after taking certain drugs that act as immunosuppressants.

For the remaining 35 AEFI data do not confirmcausal relationship with recommended vaccines for everyday use in the United States. In particular, evidence suggests a clear lack of communication between some vaccines and AEFI. Flu vaccines do not cause asthma, children’svaccines do not cause autism, vaccines do not cause diabetes, vaccines given to immunocompetent individuals do not cause hepatitis, influenza vaccines do not cause myeloma (malignant tumor) in adults, and vaccines against DTP and hepatitis B do not cause sudden infant death syndrome ).

"Medical workers want an objectiveand clear information on a huge number of questions about vaccine safety to help them answer patient questions. Until recently, there were no comprehensive reviews on AEFI, since previous reviews were not written for suppliers or the public. Our systematic review presents updated scientific data assessing the possible causal associations of AEFI presented in the reports of the Institute of Medicine, the Agency for Research and Quality of Health, as well as conclusions about the cause-effect relationships of immunization. Although the vaccines currently recommended for the US population cause some adverse reactions, vaccines in general have the highest level of safety and provide protection against infectious diseases for individuals and the population as a whole.

A full study will be presented at the PAS.2019 as part of the report “Vaccine Safety Status: Systematic Review of Evidence” on April 29, 2019. The PAS meeting brings together thousands of paediatricians and other health professionals to improve the health and well-being of children around the world.
