The Childhood Immunization Schedule and Safety:
Stakeholder Concerns, Scientific Evidence, and Future Studies

This new report, from the Institute of Medicine, assesses the feasibility of studying health outcomes in children who were vaccinated according to the recommended schedule and those who were not, such as children who received vaccines according to an alternate schedule or who have not been immunized. The report explores the strengths and limitations of different study methods, including financial and ethical issues.

This series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 16, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
