Safety data management systems, methods of post introduction evaluation and assessing performance in countries using COVID-19 vaccines

The module describes the different approaches and options available for collecting data using the tools available (some of which are still under development), the routing, timelines and the activities to be done at various levels when processing the data and generating information for action. It presents an overview of the approaches undertaken by countries and their efforts to share vaccine safety and pharmacovigilance data. Guidance is provided to show how indicators to measure the functionality of data management systems and the quality of the pharmacovigilance could help programme managers at national, province and district levels.
