Post-Marketing Safety Surveillance for Inactivated and Live-Attenuated Japanese Encephalitis Vaccines in China, 2008–2013

This article, published in Vaccine, presents the results of passive post-marketing safety surveillance for an inactivated Japanese encephalitis (JE) vaccine and a live-attenuated JE vaccine in China from 2008 to 2013. Passive surveillance of adverse events for both vaccines in China did not identify apparent safety concerns. The authors note that further study should evaluate potential correlation between inactivated JE vaccine and febrile convulsion, discern effects of concurrent vaccination with other vaccines, and employ more sensitive signal detection methods. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
