Many people think that VAERS is the only way that we can monitor the safety of vaccines in the Unites. They are clearly unaware of the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) and of the Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment (CISA) Project.
CISA is a network of vaccine safety experts that can help pediatricians evaluate their patients who may have had vaccine injuries. CISA experts do research about vaccine safety too.
For more information:
- CISA History
- Requesting a CISA Evaluation
- CISA Resources – includes an algorithm for the management of suspected allergic reactions to vaccines and an algorithm to assess causality after individual adverse events following immunizations.
