A new international study will examine the rare side effects caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

The University of Alberta in Canada is leading the study, through the Mạng lưới Dịch vụ Chủng ngừa Đặc biệt Quốc tế (INSIS). INSIS brings together specialist clinicians in vaccine safety, systems biology and genomics, including AusVaxAn toàn, to characterise the risk factors and underlying mechanism of adverse events following COVID-19 immunisation.

INSIS focuses on very rare adverse reactions, those which affect less than 0.001 % of the population, that occur after COVID-19 vaccination. This study aims to understand the causes and risk factors behind these occurrences, to ensure the development of even safer vaccines in potential future pandemics.
