ABSTRACT
The article presents information on progress during the last five years in ensuring the safety of all immunizations given through their national immunization programmes. An expert Committee of the World Health Organization states that many challenges remain to be tackled. When the safety of immunization is not assured, there are both human and economic costs. More and more countries are using auto-disable syringes, ensuring safe disposal of immunization-related waste, strengthening their regulatory authorities, and monitoring and managing adverse events following immunization.
