Reporting to VAERS

Has your child had a bad reaction to a vaccine or what you think is a vaccine injury?

The CDC advises that “all significant adverse events that occur after vaccination of adults and children, even if you are not sure whether the vaccine caused the adverse event.”

What if your doctor won’t report the vaccine reaction?

While unfortunate, you can simply report the vaccine reaction yourself.

Health care providers are required to report:

  • Adverse events that are listed by the vaccine manufacturer as a contraindication to further doses of the vaccine.
  • Adverse events that are listed in the VAERS Table of Reportable Events Following Vaccination that occur within the specified time period after vaccination.

And keep in mind that VAERS isn’t the only way that the safety of vaccines is monitored, which should be reassuring to those who believe that vaccine reactions are under-reported. And remember that VAERS’ reports did help us quickly find the problems with the older rotavirus vaccines (increased risk of intussusception).

  2. Re myth #25 that “Doctors don’t report” – In 2015 there were 44,440 incidents reported to VAERS. Although VAERS does not explicitly categorize the reporter, “column 9” of the data provides a description of the party reporting, covering around 28,000 of the cases. Of those,

    31.8% were reported by a “healthcare professional” (Unspecified) e.g. medical assistant.
    28.4% were reported by a nurse.
    17.6% were reported by a doctor / physician.
    10.8% were reported by a pharmacist.
    5.7% were reported by a family member (parent or grandparent).
    5.7% were reported by the patient.

    Thus 89% of cases were reported by a medical professional (first four categories).
