Where can I report an adverse event (unexpected or serious vaccine reaction)?

Question: 

Where can I report an adverse event (unexpected or serious vaccine reaction)?

Answer: 
  • Contact the health care provider that gave the vaccine to report the reaction.
  • If you don't know who provided the vaccine, you can contact a health unit near you and ask to speak with a nurse. 
Vaccine safety is important. Reporting potential adverse events (unexpected or serious reactions) following immunization is a part of Canada's vaccine safety monitoring process.
