Vaccine Safety

COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the FDA have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials. The U.S. vaccine safety system ensures that all vaccines are as safe as possible. 

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

See the CDC's vaccine safety page to learn how the federal government is working to ensure the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.

VAERS

Report any adverse reactions using the Vaccine Event Reporting System (VAERS). Anyone can submit a report to VAERS, including patients, family members, healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers and the general public. CDC and FDA encourage anyone who experiences an adverse event after receiving a vaccine to report to VAERS.

Please note: Counties May Be in Different Places in Vaccine Administration

The California Department of Public Health has convened a Drafting Guidelines Workgroup which is leveraging national prioritization frameworks and reviewing data regarding occupational exposure and COVID risk to prioritize sectors across phases and tiered population groups. Counties will follow these guidelines in administering vaccine.

However, given the number of people falling into the various tiers in a specific county, the uptake of those in the priority group in getting vaccinated, and the logistics and timeline for use of the vaccine so that no doses go to waste, counties may be in different tiers in administering vaccine to their population.
