A question for all who have received a vaccine. Have any of you registered on the CDC VSafe tool to report vaccine side effects? Since we are all crash test dummies for the vaccines, reporting side effects no matter how minor is useful to the government and the manufacturers.

The tests were done before the vaccines were approved..... I will take whatever vaccine is available to me with full confidence.

This is new to us.

Yeah, providing these information will be like giving back to the community for the blessings that we received.

Thanks for making us aware and we will definitely look into this and provide the feedback.

I have not, but plan to after the 2nd dose. You are right... there's a lot left to learn about the side effects. Thanks for the reminder!

My experience: My brother in law (who is a physician) made me aware of VSafe. When I registered for the vaccine through CVS, as part of the procedure I had to print and electronically acknowledge receipt of a 6 page information document. Didn't mention VSafe but did provide a link and phone # for the HHS VAERS. When I got my first shot I was given another info sheet that provides info about VSafe. Simple procedure, went to CDC website found the VSafe registration link. Entered required info, received a confirmation text with a registration #. Tapped the registration # it opened the app and allowed me to answer 4 quick questions. From there forward, I was sent a text at same time each day to enter my daily report. After 3 consecutive days of reporting no side effects the texts ended.

I don't know how the process works in Canada, but in the US, the 3 vaccines in use and any therapeutic procedure or medication to treat active Covid-19 infections were granted Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA. None are fully approved and licensed, that takes about 2 years or more of data collection and data analysis. The severity of the pandemic turned everything upside down.

Regardless of the legal wording for all the vaccines, I had rather take my chances with a vaccine than go thru what a lot of folks I know did with the actual virus. Quite a few did not make it.

Again, correlation is not causation. But I don't think this is just coincidence.

There are now near zero deaths (measured death per thousand) from Covid for the most vulnerable age group of 65 and over.

You should get 1 text a week after the first 3 daily,until the second shot,then daily for a few days again depending on your answers.
