In France, this concern is turning into a strange affair, quite decorrelated from scientific and clinical facts. The french equivalent of the US Supreme Court granted a few months ago an indemnization to a nurse who has MS and had received the HB vaccine. She was convinced her MS was due to the vaccine. Many people considered this decision as the proof there was a link between HB vaccination and MS (although the judges themselves recognized there wasn't any scientific evidence up to now). Consequently, HB vaccination coverage has dropped in France.
I wanted to have a north american point of view of the question, (especially your neuros's opinion) because it seems to me we are the only country in the world concerned by this. And I can't believe we (the french) have been smarter than the rest of the world for 15 years, discovering a vaccine side effect nobody has ever observed elsewhere.
