Neurologic complications of vaccination
Serious neurologic complications of vaccination are rare. Unfortunately, many associations between vaccination and putative neurologic complications have been asserted without sufficient objective data to establish a causal relationship. Most patients with vaccine-associated neurologic complications recover fully, although rare poor outcomes are recognized. Reported neurologic complications of vaccination have included headache, postvaccination (“needle-stick”) syncope, febrile seizures, encephalomyelitis, transverse myelitis, meningitis, and polyneuritis.
