The HPRA is publishing regular safety updates which provide an overview of the national reporting experience for COVID-19 vaccines. These updates includes an overview of reports of suspected side effects notified to the HPRA safety monitoring system and is provided as an enhanced transparency measure for members of the public and healthcare professionals.
Reports included are those notified to the HPRA on a voluntary basis by healthcare professionals and members of the public. Reporting of all suspected side effects to COVID-19 vaccines (www.hpra.ie/report) is encouraged. Reports received by the HPRA from the companies (to date, BioNtech, Moderna, Astra Zeneca, Janssen) responsible for the vaccine are also included.
The information provides an up-to-date summary of the national reporting experience. However, it is important to understand that conclusions on the safety of a vaccine cannot be drawn based on the information provided, given well-established and known limitations in interpreting such data in isolation.
