Background: Complications of national program vaccination have great importance, because widespread use of vaccines and expanded age range of vaccinees increases the percentage of side effects. Present study was performed for evaluating the complications of national measles and rubella vaccination in Hamedan province. Materials and methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was done from December sixth to January fifth 2003 and two months after termination of vaccination program. The study was performed by filling complication forms that were distributed in the vaccination centers. The data was analyzed by SPSS software. Results: A total of 827468 persons had been vaccinated in Hamedan, 260 out of them showed different complications. They had occurred mostly in 10 to 14 year old age group and had reported mainly by vaccination teams. 61.41 % of complications had been occurred in the first 24 hour after vaccination. 86 % of them had reactions to vaccination. 91 % of cases were outpatient. The complications with incidence rate more than were urticaria, fever, head ache, vomiting, lymphadenopathy, cough, skin rash, myalgia, pharyngitis, arthritis, rhinitis, restlessness and occular complications in decreasing order. The complications with incidence rate less than were sever dyspnea, seizure, diarrhea, paresthesia, anaphylaxis, encephalitis, thrombocytopenia, and Gillan – Barre syndrome. Conclusion: Mild complications were more frequent than severe ones. Most of the complications were related to reaction to vaccine, we didn’t have any program fault. Therefore we suggest a potent and flexible care system for reacting to side effects.
