V-Safe Frequently Asked Questions

Back to Adverse Reaction Data / Back to Home
  1. What is "V-Safe"?

    "V-Safe" is a U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) tool for the general public to receive notices of upcoming vaccine appointments as well as submit basic adverse reaction information to COVID-19 vaccine drugs through their "V-Safe" account.

  2. What is the "V-Safe" website


  3. What are the main differences between VAERS and V-Safe?

    • Most cases submitted to VAERS are done so my medical personnel although some are self-reported. Most information collected through V-Safe are self-reported symptoms.
    • VAERS data (other than names) is available to be examined by the public, journalists, physicians and researchers. The CDC does not make the raw V-Safe data available to the general public and therefore any summaries that are sent out are subject to the whims of government bureaucrats.
    • People who have serious reactions that require medical treatment are encouraged to submit their cases to VAERS. V-Safe seems to focus more on general, milder categories of reactions such as joint pain, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, etc.
    • V-Safe is also focused on reminding users to get vaccinated. VAERS is solely focused on collecting adverse reaction reports.
    • It is a violation of U.S. Federal law to submit a false report to VAERS. Presumably the same is true with V-Safe, but it has yet to be verified.

  4. Is V-Safe used to conduct research?

    Yes. On occasion, there are followup contacts from researchers who will ask for more detailed medical information on specific subjects.

  5. Is V-Safe being used by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to promote COVID-19 vaccine drugs?

    Yes. No serious researcher wanting to collect data in an unbiased way would name their program "V-Safe" any more than a researcher would name it "V-Death" or "V-Poison-In-A-Bottle." If the CDC claims that the name won't subtely affect some of the experimental subjects' perceptions of the drug, then just rename the program "V-Poison-In-A-Bottle" and see if the results change over a year or two. It is basic research ethics to try and at least create the perception of being unbiased.

    The program is being used to encourage the subjects to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine drugs with appointment reminders and statements on the CDC website that the experimental COVID-19 vaccine drugs are "safe" and "effective."

  6. Does the CDC encourage V-Safe subscribers to report adverse effects to VAERS?

    Yes. You can see an image of the V-Safe input screen on page 13 of this Pdf document. You may notice that V-Safe tends to focus on reactions such as joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, etc. and not so much on very serious reactions seen in VAERS such as death, blood clots, seizures, etc.
