The world is still in the throes of the pandemic. It would be an understatement to state that we are living in unprecedented times. Nothing reflects this more than the speed and agility with which the pharmaceutical industry has been working on a bringing a vaccine to market. New and revolutionary technologies are being used in these vaccines. It also brings to fore the significant impact the administration of the vaccine will have on pharmacovigilance (PV) globally both in terms of the number of reports and other reports of (suspected) adverse drug reactions that will invariably involve the COVID-19 vaccine(s) as concomitant medication(s).
Given that we are charting new waters on so many fronts, it becomes pertinent to assess – Where we are? How did we get here? How the world can effectively prepare for such emergencies in the future?
Key takeaways from this event include:
- General trends in vaccine safety in ‘pandemic times’
- Signs of differentiation between COVID19 vaccines
- Evaluating reports of vaccine failure
- Best practices
