Immunization: Schedules, reporting and resources
Adverse Event Reporting
All health care professionals in Ontario who administer vaccines and/or care for patients following immunization are required by law to report adverse events to their local health unit within 7 days of diagnosis. Adverse events may be reported by downloading the Report of Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI) form.
Questions about reporting an AEFI and the reporting form? See Public Health Ontario’s AEFI fact sheet.
