WHO Vaccine Reaction Rates Information Sheets

This web page provides links to information sheets on reaction rates of selected vaccines. The papers are primarily designed for use by national public health officials and immunization program managers. Data from these sheets can be used for the evaluation of "adverse events following immunization" reported during national immunization programs, and also for preparing communication materials about specific vaccines. Each sheet includes a short summary of the vaccine, details of mild and severe adverse reactions (local and systemic) following immunization, and expected rates of vaccine reactions, if available in published literature.
