IOM Report on Adverse Effects of Vaccines

Landmark 2011 report created in response to Health Resources and Services Administration request to the IOM to review a list of adverse events associated with eight vaccines—varicella zoster, influenza (except 2009 H1N1), hepatitis B, HPV, MMR, hepatitis A, meningococcal, and those that contain tetanus—and evaluate the scientific evidence about the event–vaccine relationship. Overall, the committee concluded that few health problems are caused by or clearly associated with vaccines.
