Adverse effects of vaccine suspected.

Washington, D.C.: Although the medical profession considers vaccine administration safe, the Department of Health and Human Services has requested health care providers and manufacturers of vaccines report any adverse reactions to inoculations.

The most commonly used substances are designed to combat diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, mumps, and rubella. Growing in popularity among physicians is the administration of vaccine for the prevention of colds and their complications.

The reporting system could assist in heading off serious respiratory ailments and reactions such as the near calamity that resulted from the attempt to inoculate against the swine-flu "epidemic."
