Description

This activity characterizes the capability of the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database (MSDD) to support active surveillance for vaccine safety. Specifically, investigators analyzed aggregated data from participating Mini-Sentinel Data Partners to better understand the strengths and limitations of this novel active surveillance system. This is one of the vaccine-related Mini-Sentinel activities collectively described as PRISM (Postlicensure Rapid Immunization Safety Monitoring).
