European research programme for improved vaccine safety surveillance

Objective

The overall objective is to provide a scientific basis for improved vaccine safety surveillance. Problems in current passive reporting systems will be explored; Further objectives include development of case definitions for Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI); production of guidelines for data collection; development of a vaccine register model; comparisons of active and passive surveillance; and production of training materials. Work plan: A systematic review of Aegis after MMR will be performed. Problems in the current passive reporting systems will be analysed utilizing recently compiled European database. Expert groups will develop case definitions for significant AEFI, and the definitions will be validated. Essential properties of vaccine registers will be analysed. The conclusions from these achievements will be used in a prospective study of active and passive reporting systems. All results will be combined in an analytic overview, and also used for electronic training materials directed to professionals in vaccine-vigilance.
