The New York Times has an article about the cases of Guillain-Barré
that followed the attempt to head off Swine Flu back in the Seventies through a vaccination drive. The article is notable in that this is one of the few cases I remember that conventional medicine has taken vaccine reactions seriously and the press has reported on them. Clearly there is a problem, the issue is, first, determining the magnitude of the problem in order to set public health policy rationally, and, second, determining who is likely to have adverse reactions so that they can be excluded. Usually the issue is polarized so that on one side, one dismisses vaccine reactions entirely or on the other, claims that no one has ever been helped by a vaccination anywhere.
