Moreover, the CDC and FDA run the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for vaccines once they are licensed and used by the public. There are no laws requiring doctors or hospitals to report adverse events and no regulations on this subject, so the scope of this project seems depressingly narrow. In fact, it’s estimated that only 1-10% of vaccine injuries are actually reported to VAERS.
