The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is tracking COVID-19 vaccinations through its COVID Data Tracker, validating the numbers with jurisdictions through the data submission process, CDC announced. The CDC data may differ from numbers posted by the jurisdictions due to the timing of reporting and website updates, the agency said. CDC encourages health care providers to report vaccine-related adverse events through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Individual patients also can self-report potential adverse events through the agency’s new patient reporting platform, v-safe. CDC also recently updated its clinical guidance for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
