This event will examine critically the provision made for the small numbers of those who have suffered adverse reactions after administration of one of the Covid-19 vaccines. The focus of this event will be on the compensation schemes established at a national and international level (including the COVAX / GAVI scheme) to provide compensation and support for those affected.
