The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is holding its sixth annual #MedSafetyWeek social media campaign on 1-7 November 2021.

This year’s campaign theme is reporting suspected side effects following vaccination.

Healthcare professionals (HCPs), national immunisation programme staff, as well as patients, their carers and families are encouraged to report suspected side effects from vaccines or medicines to the MHRA Yellow Card scheme.

Further information and resources about the campaign are available from the October Drug Safety Update, and practices can share MHRA social media posts.

Campaign materials will also be published on the Yellow Card scheme
