US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) Vaccine Data for Present

US VAERS vaccine data for 01/01/2018 - 06/14/2018. If you want to explore the full VAERS data for 1990 - Present (data, symptoms, and vaccines), then check out the 'vaers' package from the URL below. The URL and BugReports below correspond to the 'vaers' package, of which 'vaersvax' is a small subset (2018 only). 'vaers' is not hosted on CRAN due to the large size of the data set. To install the Suggested 'vaers' and 'vaersND' packages, use the following R code: 'devtools::install_git("< https://gitlab.com/iembry/vaers.git>", build_vignettes = TRUE)' and 'devtools::install_git("< https://gitlab.com/iembry/vaersND.git>", build_vignettes = TRUE)'. "The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines. VAERS is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)." For more information about the data, visit < https://vaers.hhs.gov/>.

"... The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines. VAERS is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VAERS accepts and analyzes reports of adverse events (possible side effects) after a person has received a vaccination. Anyone can report an adverse event to VAERS. Healthcare professionals are required to report certain adverse events and vaccine manufacturers are required to report all adverse events that come to their attention. VAERS is a passive reporting system, meaning it relies on individuals to send in reports of their experiences to CDC and FDA. VAERS is not designed to determine if a vaccine caused a health problem, but is especially useful for detecting unusual or unexpected patterns of adverse event reporting that might indicate a possible safety problem with a vaccine. This way, VAERS can provide CDC and FDA with valuable information that additional work and evaluation is necessary to further assess a possible safety concern." Source: VAERS - About Us.
