The ACCESS Background rates report, excel sheets and event definitions are now available on zenodo. The ACCESS (vACcine Covid-19 monitoring readinESS) project was funded by the European Medicines Agency to ensure effectively monitoring of COVID-19 vaccines in the European Union. This study has generated background incidence rates of adverse events of special interest (AESI) using electronic health care databases in seven EU countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and UK). These background rates may be used to monitor the benefit-risk profile of COVID-19 vaccines. A dashboard provides an interactive manner to query and explore the background rates of diagnoses for adverse events of special interest (AESI) for COVID-19 vaccines. You can browse the data according to data source, age, sex, and calendar year, and visualise it as either a graphic or a numerical display.
