Older adults who get an RSV vaccine can use V-safe to tell CDC how they feel after vaccination

Adults 60 years and older can now register for V-safe after receiving a respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine to tell CDC how they feel after vaccination.

Using a computer, smartphone, or tablet,
they can go to vsafe.cdc.gov to complete confidential quickly and easily share with CDC how they feel after getting vaccinated (for example, if they are experiencing injection site pain or a fever). The data collected through V-safe help CDC monitor potential vaccine side effects and inform the public about what to expect following vaccination.
