Vaccine Safety Information for Healthcare Providers
CDC, US: Healthcare providers play an important role in vaccine safety.
It is up to healthcare providers to ensure that vaccines are stored, handled and administered (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/admin/storage/index.html) properly to ensure the best possible results.
When talking with patients, healthcare providers ensure that patients receive the recommended vaccines. Providers share important information about vaccine benefits and risks, and answer questions about common vaccine safety concerns. Providers must be knowledgeable about precautions and contraindications and be prepared to manage vaccine reactions.
