Reports of suspected adverse vaccination reactions (AVR)

The data on adverse vaccination reactions (AVRs) published here are based on information provided by Swissmedic in the form of a weekly PDF report. Swissmedic gathers, verifies and evaluates reports of side effects. To capture this data, Swissmedic operates a so-⁠called spontaneous reporting system. This means that Swissmedic relies on cases of suspected adverse reactions being reported. For this reason, direct comparisons cannot be made between different vaccines. Detailed information can be found on the Swissmedic-⁠Website.

The reports concern suspected cases of adverse vaccination reactions (AVRs). An AVR may have a temporal relationship with the vaccination. This does not mean, however, that the AVR was triggered by the vaccination. The reports of suspected cases to Swissmedic are sometimes delayed and therefore the information presented can only be related to a limited extent to the total number of vaccinations administered. Given this delay, reports are presented here by the date of verification by Swissmedic.

Development over time

Reports of suspected adverse vaccination reactions (AVR), Switzerland and Liechtenstein, 23.03.2021 to 15.06.2021

The graph shows the development of the number of reports of suspected adverse vaccination reactions (AVRs) occurring in a temporal relationship with the vaccination. The AVR figures cover vaccines from all suppliers.

Serious adverse vaccination reactions are those that are fatal or life-⁠threatening, require hospitalisation or the extension of hospitalisation, lead to permanent or serious disability or incapacity or manifest in a congenital malformation/birth defect. They also include reactions that are judged to be medically important because they acutely endanger patients or require treatment to prevent a serious outcome.
All other side effects are deemed to be non-⁠serious side effects.
