Dr Andrew Rut joins Dr Barry Dworkin on his radio show 'Sunday House Call' to discuss the importance of tracking, analysing and disclosing safety information for the COVID-19 mass vaccination programs.
Sunday House Call, #766, November 22, 2020: Trust, verify, and disclose the expected and known side effects for the new coronavirus vaccines before the mass vaccination programs begin.
The effort to develop the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine has been nothing short of remarkable. Within the next few months there should be some that receive approval for use. This will bring many logistical issues that require preparation given the unprecedented nature of a worldwide mass vaccination program. How should these programs be monitored and what should we expect from the vaccine rollouts? This will require pharmacovigilance.
