IOM Releases New Report on Childhood Immunization Schedule and Safety

At the request of the Department of Health & Human Services’ (HHS) National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) and CDC, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) convened a special committee to conduct an independent evaluation of studying the safety of the childhood immunization schedule.

The IOM Committee was asked to:

  • Review scientific findings and stakeholder concerns about the safety of the current schedule.
  • Identify potential research approaches, methodologies and study designs for safety studies, as well as the financial and ethical feasibility of doing them.
  • Issue a report of its findings.

The IOM Committee found no evidence of major safety concerns with adherence to the current childhood vaccination schedule. The Committee also recommended using existing healthcare records data to continue to study the safety of U.S. licensed childhood vaccines.

The full IOM Report is available at http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2013/The-Childhood-Immunization-Schedule-and-Safety.aspx.

Additional information about the IOM assessment can be found at http://www.iom.edu/Activities/PublicHealth/ChildhoodImmunization.aspx.
