Abstract : Data based on physical examination of primary school children who received intramuscular and booster injec tions of monovalent or bivalent trachoma oil-adjuvant vaccine are presented. No adverse reactions due to vaccines followed the primary shot. One adult male (of 44 injected) developed a lipid granuloma beneath the site of the booster injection of monovalent vaccine. Among the school children, 4.2% of those vaccinated with booster injection of monovalent and 0.96% with bivalent trachoma virus vaccine developed a syndrome consisting of pain in the inoculated arm and/or fever and/or tenderness at the site of injection. This syndrome lasted less than 48 hours and was not debilitating. No residual reactions have been found in these children after 17 months' follow-up. (Author)
