Public health management and reporting of adverse events following immunization (AEFIs) is an essential component of the vaccine safety system which requires collaboration between immunization providers and all levels of the public health system to be successful. During this session, participants learn about the resources available through the Special Immunization Clinic Network to support clinicians and public health professionals in managing patients with AEFIs. We examine best practices for managing AEFIs through review of common and complex AEFI scenarios encountered in the Special Immunization Clinic Network.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe best practices for AEFI management;
  • Discuss AEFI scenarios and plan a course of action for reporting and management;
  • Identify evidence-based resources for managing patients with complex AEFIs .
