Background and purpose
Knowing how to accurately and confidently communicate about vaccine safety is a vital part of all vaccination interventions. In 2018, under the auspice of the World Health Organization, the Vaccine Safety Communications (VSC) e-library was established and made available from www.vsc-library.org
The VSC e-library is an open access, crowd sourced repository of pragmatic tools and resources to communicate about the risks and benefits of vaccines, to increase health literacy, promote health-seeking behaviors, and to help prevent dangerous misconceptions about vaccine safety.
The library is open to the health sector (immunization programs’ and national regulatory agencies’ staff), and communication officers.
