Abstract

As the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases has declined, and more new vaccines are marketed, adverse events following immunisation have attracted greater attention from the public and from health care providers. At a population level, post-licensure monitoring of vaccine safety in many countries relies on notifications to passive surveillance systems, such as the Australian Adverse Drug Reactions Advisory Committee (ADRAC).
