CDC COCA Call: What Every Clinician Should Know about COVID-19 Vaccine Safety

Monitoring vaccine safety is a vital part of the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As COVID-19 vaccines become available, the public’s knowledge and confidence in their safety, both initially and during extended use, is an important part of a successful national vaccination effort. CDC remains committed to ensuring that public health officials, healthcare providers, and the public have accurate and timely information on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.

During this COCA call, clinicians will learn how they can educate their patients on what to expect after COVID-19 vaccination. In addition, they will learn how they can play an important role in monitoring the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, including encouraging patients to enroll in v-safe and to use v-safe to report how they’re feeling. Clinicians also will learn how to report adverse events (possible side effects) to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

If you are unable to attend the live COCA call, the recording and slide set will be available for viewing on the COCA Call webpage a few hours after the live event.

Free Continuing Education (CE) will be offered for this COCA Call.
