The AusVaxSafety system monitors vaccine safety in Australia. Clinics send SMS messages to parents and carers to ask if their child had any reactions after receiving a vaccine

The latest annual report from AusVaxSafety summarises information from people receiving vaccines, or their parents and carers, who responded to an SMS about their health a few days after receiving a vaccine at routine National Immunisation Program schedule points in 2018.  

The report includes infographics about the information collected through the responses.

The results confirm that vaccines in the National Immunisation Program are safe.
