The the presence or absence of a causal relation between DPT and chronic nervous system dysfunction under any other circumstances.
That is, because the NCES is the only systematic study of long-term dysfunctions after DPT, the committee can only comment on the causal relation between DPT and those long-term dysfunctions under the conditions studied by the NCES.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommends annual influenza immunization for all people ages 6 months and older, including children and adolescents.
In addition, household contacts and out-of-home caregivers of children with high risk conditions and all children under the age of 5 especially should be vaccinated.
We define hesitancy as an expression of concern or doubt about the value or safety of vaccination.

Immunization each year is the best way to protect children. At least 77 children died from the flu in the 2015-2016 season, although the actual number is probably much higher since many flu deaths aren't reported and are caused by secondary flu complications such as pneumonia.
The excess risk has been estimated to range from 0 to 10.5 per million immunizations (IOM, 1991).
The evidence does not “establish” or “prove” a causal relation.
