Australia’s active vaccine safety system
AusVaxSafety has also completed detailed vaccine safety analyses of all National Immunisation Program (NIP) vaccines using SmartVax data. The Vaccine safety in Australia AusVaxSafety summary report 2016–17 shows how parents and carers responded to an SMS about their child's health a few days after their vaccination at each schedule point in the NIP. 115,970 vaccination encounters were included in the analysis and the results confirm that vaccines on the NIP are safe.
