Vaccine Reactions: What do I do?

  • Contact your primary-care manager, medical department representative, or go to your healthcare provider as soon as possible.

  • Be prepared to explain to the healthcare provider what happened, describe the illness or reaction, tell them the date and time it happened, and when the vaccination was administered.

  • Request that your healthcare provider file a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) form.

  • If you don’t believe your reaction is serious enough to visit a medical treatment facility, but you still wish to report it, you can contact VAERS yourself at 1.800.822.7967 or get a copy of the form at the following web site:

    http://vaers.hhs.gov/.

    If you think there is any problem, however, you are highly encouraged to report this in cooperation with a health care provider. When in doubt, visit a medical treatment facility.
