Reflections of a vaccinologist: Lessons learned about what we can do to improve trust in vaccines and vaccine programs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Public trust can be improved by learning from past mistakes, by establishing a standing forum for review of new concerns as they arise, and by maintaining a robust vaccine safety system. Developing standard guidelines for reporting causality assessment in case reports would help educate physicians and prevent future unnecessary concerns based on false assumptions of causal relationships.
