Getting vaccinated against tetanus, hepatitis, pneumonia or influenza does not increase a person's risk of developing Guillain-Barre syndrome, according to an analysis of hospitalization records from Kaiser Permanente Northern California. "There's definitely a connection in people's minds that vaccines cause this syndrome. But if you look at the [medical] literature, that doesn't bear out," the study's lead author said. The findings appeared online in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.
