The vaccines are “extremely safe,” according to a new study by researchers at Tel Aviv University and Suraski Medical Center. A team led by Dr. Daniel Shepshelovich of Sackler Medical School at TAU studied 57 vaccines that were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration between 1996 and 2015, causing 58 safety issues related to 25 of them. A large proportion of safety concerns have been identified through the FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and those that have been identified have limited clinical significance. This study suggests that the initial approval process is solid and confirms the “reliability of the vaccine approval system.”; and post-marketing surveillance “, as well as its reliability and comprehensiveness. a new side effect or known side effect that occurs with a frequency higher than expected leads to an immediate safety study and subsequent use of the vaccine. only one case in the last 20 years is a vaccine that has been withdrawn from the market. The RotaShield rotavirus vaccine was removed within months of approval after a mild intestinal side effect was found in every 5,000 to 10,000 people who took it. Conclusion: Vaccines are very safe – much more than drugs and medicines, according to a study whose side effects are much more dangerous. Shepshelovich said they did research to help show how important vaccines are to humanity. The press release explained that vaccines prevent millions of cases of illness, disability and death worldwide each year. “Coronavirus emphasizes what the world of infectious diseases will look like without an effective vaccine – and how we depend on effective vaccines provided to the general public to allow us to live our lives without fear of infecting another person with a dangerous disease such as polio, measles or mumps.” The study is based on a survey published earlier this summer by the Associated Press-NORC Center. Research on public affairs has found that only about half of Americans say they will receive the COVID-19 vaccine if scientists can develop it. “Vaccines are one of the greatest advances in modern medicine, and any information that increases the safety of their use and can help persuade parents not to avoid vaccines, which contributes to both the health of these children and the health of the general public.” The study was published this week by the peer – reviewed Annals of Internal Medicine.
