CDC Tracks COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Via Smartphones


The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) v-safe program enables Americans who have received their first COVID-19 vaccination to provide valuable information on their experience with the swipe of their smartphones. Individuals opt into v-safe, which is an addition to the CDC’s ongoing vaccine safety programs. The CDC will then send daily text messages for the first week post-vaccination and then weekly for another 6 weeks asking how the participant is feeling. The data gathered from this program are analyzed by CDC scientists who look for any patterns in reporting of adverse effects.
