Safety of Vaccines Used for Routine Immunization in the United States

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality – HHS – “Report provides important reassurances about the safety of commonly used vaccines. AHRQ Publication No. 14-E002-EF, July 2014. The report found scientific evidence that addresses several common concerns about a variety of vaccines.  For example, the report found strong scientific evidence that:

  • There is not a link between measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines and autism.
  • There is not a link between pneumonia and influenza vaccines and cardiovascular or cerebrovascular events in the elderly.
  • There is not a link between MMR; diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP); tetanus and diphtheria (Td); Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib); and Hepatitis B vaccines and childhood leukemia.”
