South African Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (SAVAERS)
The South African Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (SAVAERS) is an independent, public interest reporting system designated by the people for the people.
SAVAERS is co-managed by the (THJ) Transformative Health Justice
SAVAERS accepts voluntary reports and analyses the adverse events (possible side effects) following vaccination. SA VAERS is not designed to detect if a vaccine caused an adverse event, but it can identify unusual or common patterns of reporting that might indicate possible safety concerns requiring a closer look.
The aim of SAVAERS is to provide raw unfiltered data with true representations of the harms caused through vaccination. We also aim to help all that are injured from these vaccines get compensation.
What to do if you feel ill after having received a vaccine
- Report your reaction to SAVAERS on their reporting system
- Keep a diary about the adverse effects you experience.
- Take photos or videos of your symptoms.
- Ask your family, friends or colleagues to write a statement or affidavit about your adverse events.
- Visit a hospital or doctor if the physical or mental adverse effects are significant.
- Makes notes if unvaccinated people around you become sick.
