YDMC contributes data to this report – thankyou to all those parents and people who respond to a post vaccination SMS message
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.
This report is what is then produced
part of the report summary is
• the most common adverse events after immunisation in children were irritability;
fever; and redness, swelling or pain at the injection site
• adverse events, especially pain, redness and swelling at the injection site, happened more often at 12 months of age, but less often at 6 months of age; this was expected because children now receive one more vaccine at 12 months, and
one less vaccine at 6 months
