Upcoming Event: FDA Basics Webinar on FDA’s Safety Monitoring of Approved Vaccines, Tuesday, July 13, 2 p.m. ET

Did you know that FDA’s review of vaccine safety doesn’t stop once a vaccine is approved?  Why is it important to have different types of systems to perform safety surveillance for approved vaccines?

As part of FDA Basics, FDA is hosting a webinar where you can learn more.  The featured speaker, Andrea Sutherland, MD, MPH, Msc, a medical officer in the Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, will give an overview about vaccine safety surveillance, including the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (or VAERS), and efforts underway to improve safety monitoring.  After the presentation, there will an opportunity to ask questions.

The free 30 minute webinar will be held on Tuesday, July 13, at 2 p.m. ET.

There are a limited number of spots available for the webinar.  Webinar materials will be posted on the FDA Web site.
