Are there actually any studies that point to vaccinations causing any problems?

I've been looking around off and on for a few weeks now and I can't seem to find anything that suggests vaccinations are bad other than anecdotal claims. I'm particularly interested in evidence for vaccinations causing problems in adults or immunocompromised adults (more so than children, because I think there is *some* stuff suggesting that, right?).

Has anyone else tried to figure this out?

Thank you so much!

Interesting comment. Turns out vaccines caused the housing inflation -- and the internet -- and the increased cost of college.

Correlation does not equal causation.

Vaccines are safe -- far safer than the alternative -- for all people. There are no scientific studies to suggest anything else. There *were* four studies that have been completely discredited and redacted.

My opinion? Get your wife the vaccines.

A lot of people like to hear themselves talk. But there are no studies that show the effect, it's all correlatory BS. Jenny McCarthy spent years yelling on TV that her child's autism was caused by vaccines. In the end? Children who are vaccinated have a lower incidence of autism -- albeit not statistically significant. So what does Jenny McCarthy say now, "Without a doubt in my mind, I think vaccinations triggered Evan's autism. Isn't it ironic that in 1983, there was 10 shots and now there's 36 and the rise of autism happened at the same time?"

I've been helping my wife get her green card, and she's been dealing with pretty severe auto-immune/leaky gut issues (she's a classic GAPS case), and we just don't want to make things worse, so were trying to show the civil surgeon that she should avoid vaccines for now.

Not what I was expecting, but thank you very much. So I assume there's no evidence of contraindication other than severe allergies (and perhaps pregnancy), to your knowledge?

What's all this "vaccines are bad for people with leaky gut" business that Natasha Campbell-McBride talks about in GAPS, and she's not the only one too. You see people making claims like this all over the alternative health world. Why is there no evidence to show of it?

I have anecdotal evidence that vaccination & an autoimmune condition may not mix well.

Additionally, here are some links to articles (I have not thoroughly read them) that comment on the topic.

For my money, if I had an autoimmune condition, I would avoid all vaccinations but those absolutely necessary.... cost vs benefit weighted by probability of occurrence.

I have not come across any credible data of vaccines causing trouble outside of table injuries (site infections or server illness within 15 days of injection). They have a special court for table injuries.

For adults:

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/adult-contraindications-shell.html

As far as children, the link between vaccines and chronic illnesses just does not bare out in clincial studies.

"The committee concludes that the body of epidemiological evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. The committee also concludes that the body of epidemiological evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism." -

I haven't searched for that either, but keep in mind who would fund such a study? The drug companies aren't going to go against the profit making products which they want to sell to the world. I'm not anti vaccination, just being a realist.
