Beskrivning av projektet
“Evaluation of vaccine safety using population-based registers” study aims on comprehensive evaluation of vaccine safety based on information obtained from Finnish health registers. Study population is the entire Finnish population included in the national vaccination programme. We will use information included in the Vaccination register, care register, and other health registers. Several analysis methods will be used, including data mining. Our aim is to find signals relations between vaccines and adverse outcomes. The results will be validated and confirmed with priority on the ones with the highest safety concern. The results will be evaluated in terms of pharmacovigilance, drug safety and clinical treatment practices. The study gives vital information for population, and the clinicians. It serves the national and international vaccine safety authorities, as well as researchers in the field of vaccine safety.
