Today EMA has released its first safety update on a COVID-19 vaccine — Comirnaty. It concludes that safety data collected on Comirnaty use in vaccination campaigns is consistent with the known safety profile of the vaccine, and no new side effects were identified.
The safety update reflects data collected and assessed since Comirnaty’s authorisation, including data from EudraVigilance (the EU’s centralised database of suspected side effects) and data received from other sources, including the company’s monthly safety report required for COVID-19 vaccines. EMA will publish monthly safety updates for all authorised COVID-19 vaccines, in line with exceptional transparency measures for COVID-19.
