Learning from Adverse Events after Vaccination, U.S. Army: Action Memorandum   [open pdf - 68KB]

"Immunization is one of the most valuable tools available to keep Soldiers healthy. The overwhelming majority of immunizations are followed by mild symptoms, such as soreness at the injection site; severe adverse reactions are extremely rare. Unfortunately, the U.S. Army lost a valuable Soldier in April 2003, a month after receiving five vaccinations during mobilization. Although the evidence was inconclusive, medical experts determined that vaccination may have contributed to her death (Tab A)."
