Vaccine Safety Research, Data Access, and Public Trust

This new report, from the Institute of Medicine, assesses the design and implementation of a program to enable a broader group of researchers to access data stored in the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), a database supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study vaccine safety issues. The report also advises the CDC on whether, when, and how preliminary findings based on VSD data should be shared with outside groups.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly releassed on February 17, 2005 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
