Global regulators confirm good safety profile of COVID-19 vaccines
30 June 2023 – EMA has just endorsed a joint statement on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines issued by the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA). Evidence from more than 13 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines administered worldwide shows that these vaccines aimed at protecting people from severe outcomes of COVID-19 have a very good safety profile in all age groups, including children and people with underlying medical conditions, immunocompromised patients and pregnant women. The vaccines have saved millions of lives worldwide by significantly reducing the risk of severe disease, hospitalisation and death from infection with SARS-CoV-2.
