Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments Please consider the following comments and suggested changed to the VAERS-2 Form. With the increasing numbers of Hispanics populations locating to all parts of the county, having this form translated into Spanish would be extremely helpful. Especially if certain events are reported from a parent. Information about an adverse event to a prior dose of vaccine should be retained on the new form and would helpful epidemiologically. Regarding Box B, #7 -- 1) a box for ER/Dr visit should be retained since a hospital stay is not always indicated; 2) Since febrile seizures can be associated with certain adverse events, a separate Box denoting a Febrile Seizure should be included in this section.
