Premature Infants

Adverse events following vaccination in premature infants. “Apparent adverse events were noted in 17 of 45 (37.8%) babies: 9 (20%) had major events, i.e. apnoea, bradycardia or desaturations, and 8 (17.8%) had minor events, i.e. increased oxygen requirements, temperature instability, poor handling and feed intolerance. Babies with major events were significantly younger (p < 0.05), […]

Near miss. — Apnea after immunization of preterm infants. “However, 12 (12%) infants experienced a recurrence of apnea, and 11 (11%) had at least a 50% increase in the number of apneic and bradycardic episodes in the 72 hours after immunization.” #Premature #Cardiorespiratory #Near #Miss #DTP #Hib #Bradycardia #Apnea #Respiratory #Cardiovascular #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/9152284/ — […]

Pertussis

Bordetella parapertussis outbreak in Southeastern Minnesota and the United States, 2014. (2017) “All patients were vaccinated against pertussis, suggesting that pertussis vaccination is ineffective against B. parapertussis.” #Pertussis #Vaccine #Failure #MedScienceResearch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/28514288/ — ?

Pneumococcal

Hypotonic hyporesponsive episode and the 13-valent pneumococcal vaccine. “Hypotensive-hyporesponsive episodes are rare events after immunizations performed for diphtheria, tetanus, Haemophilus influenzae type b and hepatitis B virus vaccines, but most of the reported episodes have been associated with pertussis-containing vaccines. We report the case of a 3-month-old girl, previously healthy otherwise, presenting with the unusual […]

? Adverse events associated with childhood vaccines other than pertussis and rubella. Summary of a report from the Institute of Medicine. “The committee found that the evidence favored acceptance of a causal relation between diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and Guillain-Barré syndrome and brachial neuritis, between measles vaccine and anaphylaxis, between oral polio vaccine and Guillain-Barré […]

Cardiovascular

Acute fulminant myocarditis after diphtheria, polio, and tetanus vaccination. “We report an infant case of acute fulminant myocarditis which occurred after administration of a diphtheria, polio, and tetanus vaccination. Fever and dyspnea developed after the vaccination. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was used for intractable cardiogenic shock. The patient survived the extracorporeal support, but poor ventricular contractility […]
