2021 – The IMSN Covid-19 Vaccine Safety initiative

As the Covid-19 vaccines are being rolled out across the globe, we are all concerned about the safety issues relating to the operation and the process of vaccination including transport, storage, preparation, administration, and patient monitoring. The IMSN Executive Committee has formed the IMSN Covid-19 Vaccine Safety Interest Group, an international interest group to address these potential issues and stimulate global implementation of safer Covid-19 immunization practices.

The two primary objectives of the IMSN Covid-19 Vaccine Safety Interest Group are:

  1. To address Covid-19 vaccine safety issues by sharing the experience and learning from member countries on issues being encountered during the vaccine rollout.
  2. To make appropriate recommendations for global implementation of safe Covid-19 immunization practices.
