Vaccine pharmacovigilance is a critical aspect in public health and a key indicator for pharmacovigilance systems. The MCAZ in collaboration with the Expanded Programme on Immunization- Ministry of Health and Child Care (EPI-MoHCC), have continuously worked to develop vaccine pharmacovigilance in Zimbabwe through participation in World Health Organisation (WHO) projects, development and implementation of the Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI) surveillance guidelines and conducting trainings for health care professionals on AEFI reporting and case investigations.
