Cohort data from Denmark in all children born from January 1, 1990 to December 31, 2000 was analyzed to assess the association between immunization and type 1 diabetes in all Danish children and in a subgroup where children had a sibling with type 1 diabetes. Pediatric vaccines were associated with a statistically significant increased risk of type 1 diabetes in 12 of 21 endpoints in the general population. The rate ratios in children who received at least one dose of a specific vaccine were also elevated in the subgroup and were statistically the same as in the general population. Three doses of the hemophilus vaccine were associated with a rate ratio of 1.23 (1.02< RR<1.48) and an absolute risk in the general population of three cases/100,000 per year compared to 1.58 (0.60< RR<4.15) and an absolute risk of 2885 cases/100,000 per year in the subgroup with a sibling with type 1 diabetes. The hemophilus immunization is associated with a cumulative attributable risk of 2.3/100 (2.3%) in the subgroup.
