“Pharmacovigilance in times of COVID-19 vaccines“, is an article published in the Spanish journal Pharmatech and in which José Alberto Ayala Ortiz has been co-author.
The world is facing the unprecedented challenge of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The hope for a normal life relied on vaccines is compromised by messages that question them.

In this regard, the article aims to highlight the role of pharmacovigilance. It is important that society, in addition to being informed about specific cases, is aware that information is constantly being collected and that, through its mechanisms, pharmacovigilance ensures the safety of the population.
