Vaccine Adverse Event Report System (VAERS)

horizonal rule

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program co-sponsored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The purpose of VAERS is to detect possible signals of adverse events associated with vaccines. VAERS collects and analyzes information from reports of adverse events (possible side effects) that occur after the administration of US licensed vaccines.

Reports are welcome from all concerned individuals: patients, parents, health care providers, pharmacists and vaccine manufacturers.
