Global Vaccine Safety

New training products to strengthen vaccine safety capacity in countries

To help strengthen capacity to introduce vaccines in Member States, WHO has developed a set of WHO Information Sheets on Observed Rates of Vaccine Reactions. The information sheets are intended to help national staff to evaluate reported adverse events following immunization, and to prepare effective communication material on specific vaccines.

The information sheets provide details of observed rates of vaccine reactions of selected vaccines. They have been developed on the basis of scientific advice from the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS). The information sheets can be found on the Global Vaccine Safety Tools and Methods web page.
