Dr. Narayan Nair, Director for Division of Epidemiology in the Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology within the FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, will highlight how the FDA monitors the safety of vaccines, including potential vaccines for prevention of COVID-19. He will also describe how the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is utilized, along with its strengths and limitations.

The clinical significance of emerging post marketing vaccine-related safety issues have not been systematically previously studied. Dr. Daniel Shepshelovich, researcher at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, will report on a study which aimed to describe the prevalence and characteristics of post-approval safety related vaccine label changes as well as the distribution of data sources triggering these modifications.
