Research on Vaccine Safety

At SSI, we conduct research on the possible associations between vaccination and serious adverse events.

Areas of Focus

Using the unique Danish population registers, we evaluate hypotheses linking vaccines to serious adverse events. We are particularly interested in the safety of childhood vaccines and the safety of vaccination in pregnancy.
