Report an adverse reaction to a vaccine: industry

Canada's Food and Drugs Act and Regulations set out specific reporting requirements and timelines for mandatory reports. These include requiring regulated parties to report a serious or unexpected adverse reaction to vaccines. Reports must be made within 15 calendar days of receiving or becoming aware of the information about the adverse reaction.

What is a vaccine

Vaccines are products that produce immunity to a specific disease. Most vaccines are given by injection (needle) but some are given orally (by mouth) or nasally (sprayed into the nose).

They protect people against serious and potentially deadly diseases, such as diphtheria, measles, polio and tetanus.
