What will happen to my report
The TGA enters every report we receive of a possible side effect to a medicine into a database, which we analyse to identify safety signals.
A safety signal might be a number of similar reports of an unexpected side effect with a particular drug and is a 'flag' for a possible safety issue with a medicine. We investigate safety signals in detail to work out the possible role of the medicine or vaccine in causing the side effect.
Three months after a report has been entered into the database, we make it publicly available in the Database of Adverse Event Notifications. The three month time lag allows us to check and analyse the information in the database.
We don't make any information public that could identify the reporter or the person who experienced the side effect.
