Public Health Reporting Pathway for Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFIs) to CAEFISS

This diagram depicts how the adverse events following immunization reports flow from the origin (vaccine recipient) to the Public Health Agency of Canada. At the top of the diagram is a circle representing the vaccine recipient. From the circle, an arrow points down to a box with the immunization provider and/or health care provider with another arrow pointing from this box down to a box with local public health units. From this box, there is an arrow pointing down to a box with Federal/Provincial/Territorial Immunization Authorities and an arrow pointing to a box with Public Health Agency of Canada (CAEFISS Database). On the left of this flow diagram, is a red box depicting IMPACT with a thick solid arrow pointing from here to the CAEFISS Database box and two dotted arrows pointing from IMPACT to the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Immunization Authorities box and the Local Public Health Units. To the right of the flow diagram is a box titled Market Authorization Holders (MAH) with a dotted line pointing to the CAEFISS Database box.
