New UK consortium established to monitor COVID-19 vaccine efficacy once they hit market

COVID-19 vaccine

The UK’s Drug Safety Research Unit (DSRU) and the University of Dundee’s Medicines Monitoring Unit (MEMO Research) have come together under the shadow of the ongoing pandemic to launch a new consortium to review the safety and efficacy of emerging vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infection.

The newly established Consortium for Monitoring the Safety and Effectiveness of COVID-19 Vaccines will conduct post-marketing studies of vaccine candidates in real time to identify any adverse events associated with lack of safety or efficacy as they occur, meaning action can then be promptly taken.
