Guillain-Barre Syndrome Very Rare After H1N1 Vaccine
Date:4/13/2010

arre syndrome after seasonal flu vaccination, or a rate of about 10 per 10 million, last year. This is also within the range expected in the general population.

Yet Souayah maintains that the vaccines may trigger the syndrome in a small number of people. In looking at the distribution of cases, incidence spiked in the two weeks after the vaccine, then dropped off quickly, he said.

In addition, Souayah said he and his colleagues were very careful to count only reports in which the information was complete enough and the description of symptoms were almost certainly Guillain-Barre syndrome.

"There are probably very few cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome that could be caused by the vaccine," Souayah said. In fact, "there is more risk for not vaccinating than for vaccinating," he added.
