Vaccine injury database VAERS considered unreliable, ‘subject to biases’
October 15, 2021 - 12:01 pm

A public database that collects reports of vaccine side effects isn’t considered a reliable source of information about risks associated with COVID-19 vaccines.

Established in 1990, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) collects reports of potential side effects from licensed vaccines. Interest in the database, publicly available online, has grown since COVID-19 vaccines were approved, but the data can be misleading if used to make a direct connection to the reported deaths and injuries.
