Vaccine Development: How Are Vaccines Made and How Do We Know They Are Safe?

Investigate the world of vaccine research! Explore how vaccines are developed, tested, and approved for use in Canada with the Vaccine Evaluation Center (VEC) at BC Children's Hospital Research Institute. Once a vaccine is recommended for public use, researchers continue to monitor vaccine safety and effectiveness and make recommendations for changes. Learn more about the life cycle of vaccine development and what happens after they get approved for use.
