Post-marketing surveillance of DTaP vaccines was conducted in VAERS over a 19 year period to assess for possible rare AEs not detected in observational studies… No new or unexpected adverse events were detected. The observed disproportionate reporting for some nonserious vaccination errors calls for better education of vaccine providers on the specific indications for each of the DTaP vaccines.
