Diagram of AE counts grouped by related symptoms.

Behavior/neurological system contains the most adverse events distributed in two groups of vaccines (40 adverse events; 25 in TIV, 15 in LAIV) but the clusters are significantly different in processes. TIV's behavior/neurological AEs are much more closely related to those of muscle and movement disorder while LAIV's behavior/neurological AEs cluster around pain in the head. Respiratory system AEs is listed as the most significant cluster in LAIV group with 16 AEs. Full listing can be found in Table 1 (TIV) and Table 2 (LAIV).
