Vaccines are rigorously tested and go through many rounds of study, examination, and research before they’re used with the general public. Vaccines have been around for a long time and have proven to be one of the safest and most effective public health interventions in history, saving millions of lives globally every year eradicating diseases like smallpox, and preventing tetanus, polio, and diphtheria. All vaccines can have side effects, which are usually mild, and your pharmacist will talk you through these during your appointment and discuss which vaccines may be appropriate for you.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration’s safety monitoring team of doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and scientists are closely monitoring any reported side effects from vaccines to investigate any safety issues.
