Welcome to SAFEVAC - an Australian database for reporting of Adverse Events Following Immunisation (AEFI) and associated clinical visits. Please note this is the same system previously used by reporters (formerly AEFI-CAN).
Currently AEFI reporting can only be completed via this website if the vaccine was administered in Victoria or Western Australia (reports followed up by SAEFVIC or WAVSS respectively).
The mission of SAFEVAC is to promote confidence in the National Immunisation Program through enhancing national vaccine safety monitoring and rapid signal detection.
To help us achieve this we encourage all immunisation providers and vaccinees including healthcare workers to report any unexpected, serious or unusual Adverse events following immunisation (AEFI) to their local surveillance body (see below).
Providers are encouraged to report all vaccine or Drug (program) errors as well.
Details of who you should report to are tabulated below.
