Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

by in Vaccine Safety January 14, 2014

VAERS Website:

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VAERS is a post-marketing safety surveillance program, collecting information about adverse events (possible side effects) that occur after the administration of vaccines licensed for use in the United States.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act requires health care providers to report:

  • Any event listed by the vaccine manufacturer as a contraindication to subsequent doses ofthe vaccine,
  • Any event listed in the Reportable Events Table that occurs within the specified timeperiod after the vaccination.

If you feel that your child has been injured by a vaccine, there are three ways to report to VAERS (anyone can report):

  1. Online. Complete a VAERS online form at https://vaers.hhs.gov/esub/step1.
  2. Fax. Download a VAERS form, or request a form by sending an e-mail to info@vaers.org, by calling 800-822-7967, or by faxing a request to 877-721-0366. Review the Instructions for Completing the VAERS Paper Form at http://vaers.hhs.gov/helpinstructions. Fax the completed form to 877-721-0366.
  3. Mail. Download a VAERS form, or request a form by sending an e-mail to info@vaers.org, by calling 800-822-7967, or by faxing a request to 877-721-0366. Review the Instructions for Completing the VAERS Paper Form at http://vaers.hhs.gov/helpinstructions. Mail the completed form to VAERS, P.O. Box 1100, Rockville, MD 20849-1100. A pre-paid postage stamp is included on the back of the form.
