ICD-6, issued in 1948, and ICD-7, issued in 1955, included "Prophylactic inoculation and vaccination" as a separate cause of death category with subcategories  (codes Y40-Y49) for death due to "vaccination against smallpox" (code Y40), "inoculation against whooping cough" (code Y42), "inoculation against other infectious disease" (code Y49), etc. The ICD-8, issued in 1965, deleted the subcategories for death due to inoculation against individual diseases while maintaining "Prophylactic inoculation and vaccination" (code Y42) as a separate cause of death category. When the ICD-9 was issued in 1979, authorities removed all cause of death classifications associated with vaccination.
