notifications

In 2020 Lareb received 1,475 reports of 4,640 possible side effects after vaccinations given in the NIP. Of these, 84% are from patients and 16% from healthcare professionals. As in previous years, fever was the most commonly reported. Injection site reactions, crying and vomiting were also commonly reported.

Fewer notifications

In 2020 Lareb received fewer reports of side effects than in 2019. There are two major differences between the two years:

  • Nimenrix (MenACWY vaccine): In 2020, fewer reports of side effects were received after meningococcal ACWY vaccination (Nimenrix) than in 2019. This is explained by the fact that a catch-up campaign among young people was held in 2018 and 2019. This led to an increase in the number of vaccines given and reports of side effects.
  • Boostrix (DTK vaccine or 22-week shot): In 2020, the number of reports of side effects after pertussis vaccination in pregnant women has increased. The explanation for this is that the pertussis vaccine for pregnant women has only been included as a permanent part of the NIP since mid-December 2019.

No alerts

Based on the reports received by Lareb in 2020, no indications for special, new or worrying side effects were found within the framework of vaccine safety within the NIP.
