If you have a question about this website, you can ask by EMail. Before doing this, please note the following:
This site is not affiliated with the U.S. Government.
Instead, the site takes publically available government data and presents it.
When the government makes a new release, you can see it here.
Please do not ask when the next release will be available, because this site has no control over that.
If this is your question, then ask the government.
Unlike many websites, this one is not run by a team of workers.
Instead, it is the result of a single person's effort,
including the programming of the site as well as its maintenance over the past twenty years.
I also answer your technical questions.
It's a big job, and as you may have noticed, the site isn't monetized with ads,
so I'm not making any money. In fact, I'm spending quite a bit to present this information.
NVIC deserves thanks for paying this bill.
So even though you may be upset about vaccine safety issues (and who isn't?)
please be nice when you send me EMail.
- I am not a medical professional, so do not ask any health-related questions.
If you want to know more about vaccine safety, ask the National Vaccine Information Center.
- This site has nothing to do with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation program,
the government court that compensates people who've been adversely affected by a vaccine.

Many people ask why this site gives different results than the government site,
VAERS has reports from inside the U.S. as well as foreign reports.
CDC Wonder, by default, ignores foreign cases whereas MedAlerts defaults to searching the entire VAERS database.
If you want to align the results, either ask CDC Wonder to search all cases
(in Section 4 of the Wonder search form, set the "State/Territory" to "All Locations"),
or ask MedAlerts to ignore the foreign cases
(in section 5 of the MedAlerts search form set the "Location" to "Exclude Foreign").
Many people are upset by the fact that VAERS is able to modify any case at any time and can even remove cases.
To help explore this, you can examine the
history of additions and removals since 2003.
