OBJECTIVE: Concerns regarding adverse events following immunisation are a barrier to vaccine uptake. Health professionals use vaccine safety surveillance systems (VSSSs) to monitor vaccines and inform the public of safety data. With little known about public attitudes, perceptions, and experiences with VSSS, we examined them in the context of COVID-19 vaccinations in Western Australia. METHODS: Researchers conducted 158 qualitative interviews between March 2021 and May 2022 within the broader [name redacted] project...
