Well they would, wouldn’t they? From Medical News Today:
After analyzing over 1,000 research papers, a report issued by the IOM (Institute of Medicine) found no evidence linking vaccines to autism or type 1 diabetes risk, and very few other health problems caused or clearly linked to vaccines. According to a committee of experts who reviewed the scientific studies, convincing evidence was found of 14 health outcomes associated with vaccines, including fainting, brain inflammation and seizures, however, their occurrences were found to be very rare.
Some less clear data linking certain vaccines to four other effects, including temporary joint pain and allergic reactions were also found. Regarding other suggested adverse effects, the experts said there was inadequate data.
The IOM says that this review will help the HHS administer the VICP (Vaccine Injury Compensation Program), which depends on science-based evidence when deciding on vaccine-related side effects. The HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) asked the IOM for a comprehensive review on eight vaccines covered by VICP.
The HHS says the findings of the review are helpful for VICP staff, special masters that rule on vaccine cases, those filing claims, and others.
MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine – some people may have seizures caused by fever. In virtually all cases, the effect was temporary and without long-term consequences. Very rarely, those with severe immune deficiencies may develop a form of brain inflammation. Some women and children may experience short-term pain.
Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine – in rare cases some people may have brain swelling, pneumonia, meningitis, shingles, and hepatitis, and also chickenpox if the patient has a weakened immune system.
Anaphylaxis – this is an allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis can occur shortly after receiving the MMR, Varicella, influenza, hepatitis B, meningococcal, and the tetanus-containing vaccines (all injections). The HPV vaccine may trigger anaphylaxis in some patients.
The report also explained that vaccines in general can cause some individuals to faint, while others may develop inflammation of the shoulder. Some evidence points towards four other adverse events with some vaccines, however, the evidence is not compelling, the authors explained…
