In brief: ?death risk without?

Whooping cough risk without vaccine:23x that of vaccinated see glanz, pediatrics 2009.
Reported us pertussis 2009:13000 with 25-30 deaths attributed to disease, 80% <4mo.. Deaths attributed to dtap in us = 0. You do the math.

In brief: Vs Lives saved?

Though a death from a vaccine is a tragedy, the greater tragedy would be the millions of people who would not be alive today if vaccines were absent from our formularies.
For people who may have experienced a terrible side effect from a vaccine, they can report it to the "us vaccine adverse event reporting system" at http://vaers.Hhs.Gov/.

In brief: As low as 1 in 10 m

Estimates of random serious side effects range from 1 in a million to 1 child in 10, 000, 000.
Although this is tragic, there is a greater chance of being struck by lightening, much less a significantly higher risk of the diseases themslves. Just ask the families of the dozen or so children who dies from whooping cough ( pertussis) in california in 2011.

In brief: Almost None

According to world health organization so few deaths are attributed to vaccines it is difficult to assess statistically.
Likely less than 1 in 1 million. A child is more likely to die from a vaccine preventable disease (or fireworks, a tsunami, an asteroid, a dog attack or one of many other rare things). http://www.who.int/immunization_safety/aefi/immunization_misconceptions/en/index4.html.
