Flu Vaccine

© International Vaccination Newsletter

a) Hypersensitivity reactions of the nervous system (serogenetic) are responible in a good number of cases. Poser and Fowler describe similarities between GBS and serum disease.
b) Toxic reactions may occur soon after inoculation of the patient in the absense of specific allergies.
c) Viral infection of the brain by vaccinal viruses (4) or by reactivation of latent germs (21).
d) Activation of latent auto-immune diseases (21).

The fact that different vaccines from different manufacturers lead to similar complications, suggests that these are not the consequence of the impurity of a certain vaccine, but a risk inherent in any influenza vaccine.


Contra-Indications

Any impairment of the immune system should be considered a contra-indication.

1. Allergies, especially to any substance of the vaccines; allergy to proteins, cowsmilk etc.; hay fever... Allergic constitutions often lead to hypersensitive reactions (8).
2. Akute infections with or without fever must be a reason to postpone or abandon vaccination.
3. Chronic impairment of the immune system (auto-immune diseases) imply an increased risk in case of vaccination.
