Abstract

The success of vaccination programs is jeopardized by gaps in vaccine coverage of the target population. These are frequently due to a lack of awareness, but also result from misconceptions of adverse effects of vaccines. Subject of this article are the current vaccination rates of children, adolescents and adults as well as of medical personnel in Germany, the reporting and surveillance system for adverse effects of vaccines, the magnitude of registered permanent vaccine-induced damages and the possible immunological mechanisms underlying vaccine-triggered autoimmune diseases.
