CCDR: Volume 40 S-3, December 4, 2014: Vaccine Safety

Inside this supplement: Vaccine Safety

Canada has one of the best vaccine safety surveillance systems in the world yet few people appreciate how it works. Read about the adverse events that were tracked in 2012, and the early detection and response system we have in place to identify vaccine safety issues. See the Useful links section to see how our capacity has been recently strengthened with the funding of the Canadian Immunization Research Network.
