On 11MAR2011, he was taken to the Emergency Room and diagnosed with neural infection. Treatment was not reported. On 13MAR2011, the patient was taken to the Emergency Room again, but did not see the doctor came back home. On 14MAR2011, the patient was taken to the physician's office, where he presented with fever, vomiting, and neural infection, because of which he was hospitalized. On 14MAR2011, while in the hospital, he had seizures. An x-ray was performed which revealed an enlarged heart. The patient then had cardiac arrest. On 14MAR2011, the patient was transferred to a hospital where they have found viral myocarditis. Treatments in response to the events were not reported. On 15MAR2011, the infant died. An autopsy was performed on brain tissue culture on 15MAR2011, which showed that he died due to pneumococcal meningitis. The clinical outcome of the reported event of pneumococcal meningitis (per autopsy results) was fatal, and the outcome of the other events was unknown. Based on the information provided in the case, this individual report would not seem to modify the benefit/risk profile of PREVNAR 13.

6-17 years Death Nov., 2007 Apr., 2008 308661-1 We received on 12 FEB 2008 from a healthcare professional the following information: A 7-year-old male patient, born on 21 JUN 2000 was vaccinated with FLUVIRIN (batch no. unknown) on 19 NOV 2007. The patient was killed in an automobile traffic accident on 01 FEB 2008. The subject had participated in a clinical trial sponsored by MedImmune. FLUVIRIN was used in that trial as a control, and Novartis Vaccine & Diagnostics (NVD) has donated the FLUVIRIN, but other than that has not been involved. Although the event did not occur during the duration of the trial, and the investigator did not see any causal relationship to the vaccination with FLUVIRIN, he reported the event to the IRB and NVD because the child had died.

6-17 years Death Aug., 2009 Feb., 2010 380740-1 Patient received the HPV as well as the flu nasal spray on Aug 25th. I first declined getting her the vaccination but her doctor ensured me that it was safe. I had declined the same vaccination a year earlier at the downtown public health center. Patient was getting ready for school and was standing by her closet, and all of a sudden she fell, she lost total control of her legs. She went to school and could not engage in any of the activities because of the numbness in her legs and the swelling of her foot. She also, started to get a really bad headache. Days later she woke up out of her sleep complaining of a severe headache, which usually she gets if she has a seizure but she hadn't had a seizure this night. She continued to say she had not feeling in her foot and tingling feeling in her leg. After I examined her foot I noticed it was swollen. The next morning I called her doctors office and made her doctors appointment for Oct 23rd. During the month of October she had irregular periods. My daughter never made it to Oct 23rd, which as also her birthday. She passed on Oct. 17th, I found her cold unresponsive in her room at 7am, which I went in to wake her up to take her morning pills.
