Vaccine Vigilance

Vaccine vigilance refers to the ongoing monitoring and assessment of the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. It is an important aspect of pharmacovigilance that helps to ensure the continued safety and efficacy of vaccines and to minimize any adverse effects associated with their use.

Vaccine vigilance activities include the collection, analysis, and reporting of adverse events associated with vaccines, risk assessments to determine the likelihood of adverse effects occurring, and implementation of measures to prevent and manage adverse effects. This may include educating healthcare providers and the public about the benefits and risks of vaccines, and developing guidelines and recommendations for the safe use of vaccines.

In recent years, with the increased use of vaccines and the introduction of new vaccines, vaccine vigilance has become even more important. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine vigilance has taken on added significance as the number of people receiving vaccines has increased dramatically.

Vaccine vigilance is critical in maintaining public confidence in vaccines and ensuring their continued safe and effective use. By continuously monitoring and assessing the safety of vaccines, vaccine vigilance helps to identify and address any potential safety concerns and to minimize the risk of harm to patients.
