Just found this ... published this year (2012) ... sorry if a repeat post/thread (ran a search but didn't see it ...)
Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality
Scroll down for Table of Contents and click to read.
Kathleen Stratton, Andrew Ford, Erin Rusch, and Ellen Wright Clayton, Editors;
Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine
Check out Chapter 13 (Concluding Comments) and Appendix D (Causality Conclusion Tables).
... Have yet to peruse it ... but mostly "Inadequate" under the Causality Conclusion column in App. D
From Chapter 13 - Concluding Comments (from pages 632-633)
- Because the committee did not find convincing evidence that the vaccine does cause the adverse event, the vaccine is safe.
- Because the committee did not find convincing evidence that the vaccine does not cause the adverse event, the vaccine is unsafe.
Neither of these interpretations is correct. "Inadequate to accept or reject" means just that - inadequate.
