Adverse events following immunisation annual reports

The adverse events following immunisation surveillance aims to monitor vaccine and immunisation program safety and to detect population-specific, rare, late-onset or unexpected adverse events that may not be detected in pre-licensure vaccine trials. This page contains annual reports from 2002, which are available in both PDF and HTML formats.

Ongoing surveillance of adverse events following immunisation, and regular analysis and reporting of these data, are integral to the management of immunisation programs. An 'adverse event following immunisation' is defined as any serious or unexpected adverse event that occurs after a vaccination has been given which may be related to the vaccine itself or to its handling or administration. An AEFI can be coincidentally associated with the timing of immunisation without necessarily being caused by the vaccine or the immunisation process.
