Frequently asked questions

The South African Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (SAVAERS) is an independent, voluntary, public interest vaccine effects reporting system, designated by the people for the people. The aim of SAVAERS is health, transparency and accountability. SAVAERS is managed by the (THJ) Transformative Health Justice and supported by citizens, doctors and lawyers.

An adverse effect is classified as an unexpected health event after vaccination. These are not limited to physical effects. Mental or cognitive effects can also be reported.

Reporting adverse events to SAVAERS will help us in our commitment to providing honest statistics to the public, free from political or pharmaceutical agenda. Your report will also help with public awareness. If there is a risk, there must be a choice, and people must be informed fully before consent.

The information reported here will be used for data analysis to identify patterns that indicate safety issues in vaccines. This data will be provided to the public often. Transparency and honest representation of the figures is our main goal with this reporting system.

The mission is to provide unfiltered reports data, with factual representations of the real or potential harms related to vaccination.

SAVAERS may also assist victims or their loved ones to receive advice and compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income, and expenses incurred.

SAVAERS will contact you with more information once transparent details of a tax-payer funded compensation scheme are announced. Alternatively, you can proceed with independent legal action.

SAVAERS accepts reports from patients/victims, families, caregivers, friends, and healthcare providers (HCP), who are encouraged to report adverse events post injection to SAVAERS, even if it is not clear that the vaccine caused the adverse event.

If you can, please get blood and antibody tests done for evidence purposes. In case of death, independent autopsies become important. You can also report adverse events or death
to SAHPRA. We encourage you to do so, so data can be compared.

Any adverse effects noticed after vaccination should be reported. This is not limited to physical side effects, we encourage people to also report mental side effects experienced.

Reports from around the world (for example the UK’s Yellow Card system) suggest that the mental side effects have been alarming, but are under-reported.

Adverse effects range from mild to moderate to severe to fatal. Report them all.

  • Vaccine administration errors, whether or not associated with an adverse event.
  • Serious Adverse Events regardless of causality resulting in death.
  • A life-threatening Adverse Event.
  • Inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization.
  • A persistent or significant incapacity or substantial disruption of the ability to conduct normal life functions.
  • A congenital anomaly/birth defect.
  • An important medical event that based on appropriate medical judgement may jeopardize the individual and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed above.
  • Cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome
  • Cases of COVID-19 that result in hospitalization or death.

Healthcare providers are encouraged to report to SAVAERS any additional clinically significant Adverse Events following vaccination, even if they are not sure if vaccination caused the event.

SAVAERS is not run by the South African government. This reporting system is co-managed through Transformative Health Justice (THJ) and information technology experts who volunteered to assist.

SAVAERS will provide data to the public on the number and type of adverse events reported to this system. This information will be easily shareable with and by the public via this website.

The South African government is in the process of allocating public funds to the ‘no-fault’ compensation plan. This means that if anyone experiencing an adverse effect, they can claim from public funds and not from the vaccine manufacturer who will be indemnified from legal claims.

This is a controversial and dangerous scheme as it is unclear and will put extra strain on our economy, which is already struggling with unemployment.

Regardless, our team, with your support, will do all in our power to see that you are fully compensated for injury or death.

All report identities are kept confidential and protected on our private servers. Your privacy is important to us so please rest assured we have taken all necessary steps to protect the data.

A copy of your report will be emailed to you on completion of the registration form.

If you would like to provide relevant follow-up information, please contact at [email protected] and your report will be updated manually. Please provide detailed but concise information.

SAVAERS will share data on the number of cases reported, the adverse effects experienced, and what the key analysis points are.

This will be available for download via Excel (detailed information) or via posters (concise summaries).
