Abstract
Determining incidence rates of potential adverse events before and after an immunisation programme is initiated, provides a useful framework for the evaluation of vaccine safety concerns. Human papillomavirus vaccination (HPV) of adolescent girls has recently been introduced in Denmark. Using a nationwide hospitalisation registry we estimated incidence rates of immune-mediated disorders before HPV vaccination in a cohort of 418,289 Danish girls aged 12-15 years. We further estimated the expected number of cases of immune-mediated disorders occurring in temporal relationship to a hypothetical HPV vaccination schedule purely by chance. Our results and analytical approach provides a framework for the evaluation of adverse event reports following immunisation of adolescent girls.

Abstract
Climate changes will likely have an impact on the spectrum of infectious diseases in Europe. We may see an increase in vector-borne diseases, diseases spread by rodents such as Hantavirus, and food- and water-borne diseases. As the effects of climate changes are likely to occur gradually, a modern industrialised country such as Denmark will have the opportunity to adapt to the expected changes.
