AEFI reporting microsite media briefing webinar
August 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA), invites you to the launch of the Adverse Events Following Immunisation (AEFI) reporting microsite.
The microsite will keep the public updated on reports of adverse events following immunisation (AEFIs) associated with COVID-19 vaccine administration. All medicines, including vaccines, can cause side effects. In the case of vaccines, side effects or adverse events that occur after vaccine administration are known as AEFIs. However, the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the risks. COVID-19 vaccines have proven to prevent severe forms of disease, hospitalisation and death.
