A new online form now makes it easier to report suspected adverse reactions to a COVID-19 vaccine. The new user-friendly form will also be linked to Vaccinnet+. Therefore, certain fields will be filled in automatically in the future. Reporting adverse reactions can increase the knowledge of the safety profile of the vaccines. The FAMHP will regularly provide an update on the follow-up of the reports.
On 20 November 2020, the FAMHP recalled Marevan 60 tablets of 5 mg (manufactured by Therabel) at pharmacy level. The quality of the medicinal product can now be guaranteed, meaning that the recalled batches may be placed back on the market. As soon as its price is approved (by the FPS Economy), the medicinal product may be supplied to pharmacies.
