Since 1991 over 86 million doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine have been given in the United States. An article in the December 1999 Archives of Pediatrics looked at the stories of the 18 children who had unexplained deaths within a month of having received the vaccine.
There is no clear evidence that the vaccine has caused an increase in deaths. On the contrary, since the introduction of the Hepatitis B vaccine, the newborn death rate dropped from 7.0 to 4.8 deaths per 1000 and the number of reported unexplained deaths dropped by 50 percent.
