Led by the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) and funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, AusVaxSafety is a world-leading national vaccine safety system.
AusVaxSafety was established in 2014 to monitor adverse events following immunisation with influenza vaccines in children. AusVaxSafety has now grown into a multi-component system, including:
1. active vaccine safety surveillance
2. Adverse Events Following Immunisation-Clinical Assessment Network (AEFI-CAN)
3. vaccine safety in primary healthcare data.
AusVaxSafety is a collaboration between immunisation providers, private enterprise, research institutions, state and territory governments and the Australian Government Department of Health, which has significantly improved Australia’s ability to monitor, detect and respond to vaccine safety events.
