Implementing near real-time vaccine safety surveillance using the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD).
Leite, A; Thomas, SL; Andrews, NJ;
Near real-time vaccine safety surveillance (NRTVSS) using electronic health records is increasingly used to rapidly detect vaccine safety signals. NRTVSS has not been fully implemented in the UK. We assessed the feasibility of implementing this surveillance using the UK... View more
