The Global Vaccine Safety Initiative (GVSI)

The Global Vaccine Safety Initiative (GVSI) is a global collaborative effort to ensure that everyone everywhere can be protected from serious infectious diseases with minimal untoward effects from the best available vaccines. This website provides a wide range of information about vaccine safety in general and the GVSI in particular. It includes: information on established untoward effects of vaccines and estimates of their rates of occurrence; advice from an expert advisory group on vaccine safety issues of global importance; links to tools and methods for enhancing local capacity in vaccine safety; and up-to-date information on the management of the GVSI.
