Key Messages and Answers about Vaccine Safety. Manual for Health Care Workers

Health workers are among a community’s most reliable sources of information on immunization. The purpose of this publication is to provide them with information they can use to respond to frequently asked—and sometimes difficult— questions about vaccination. These pages also review the myths and negative rumors that have been circulating about the regular vaccination program and COVID-19 vaccines.
