Abstract:

When reporting adverse events following immunisation, information about which vaccine was given, how it was administered, and if it was administered within the expiry date is often incomplete. To improve immunisation practice, a standardised uniform procedure is needed. Examples are given, where immunisations were given beyond the expiry date or were wrongly administered. These examples include proposals to avoid misleading documentation in the immunisation card.

Keywords: Inactivated measles vaccine, medication error, mumps rubini strain, rotavirus vaccine, standard terms, triple code, vaccine safety.
