The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a new report that offers an update on the vaccine reactions and vaccine rollout of the 2016 influenza pandemic.
The report found that the majority of the vaccines in circulation were found to be safe, with only a few being found to cause serious side effects.
Here’s what we learned:1.
CDC released its new vaccine report on Thursday, which has been in the works for months, but it has never been made public before.2.
The 2016 pandemic was not an isolated event.
The United States was hit by the pandemic on or around October 1, 2016, and the flu vaccine, commonly known as the flu shot, was used on approximately 8% of Americans.3.
There were no reports of serious side reactions, although many patients experienced severe side effects, such as fever and fatigue.4.
Some patients may have developed an allergic reaction to a particular component of the vaccine, which may have been the reason the vaccine did not work as well as hoped.5.
The CDC says the vast majority of vaccine users have been vaccinated.
The vaccine is currently being distributed to more than 10 million people across the United States.6.
The new report shows that the rate of vaccine reactions has declined over the last six months.
The rate of reported reactions decreased by 24% from January to August.7.
The percentage of vaccine recipients who experienced serious side symptoms dropped from 38% to 29%.8.
Overall, the rate for flu vaccine side effects was lower than for any other vaccine administered in the last three years.
The report says the following side effects are among the more common:1- Common symptoms include headache, fever, chills, cough, and fatigue that last for two to three days.2- Common side effects include flu-like symptoms, including fever, muscle aches, fatigue, and joint pains.3- Common reactions include a rash or redness on the face and neck, or red or bloody discharge.4- Common adverse reactions include an increased risk of pneumonia, diarrhea, or severe muscle pain.5- Common complications include mild fever, fever and malaise, headache, and tiredness.6- Common vaccine complications include vaccine failure, vaccine rash, and severe allergic reactions.7- Common viral infections are more common, including pneumonia, meningitis, and hepatitis B virus.
The CDC said it will be releasing a second report on the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine in the coming weeks.
The first report, released in April, found that people who had a flu vaccine had a 33% lower risk of death compared to those who did not.CDC: What to know about flu vaccine reactions.
