SAFETY PROTOCOLS IN RESPONSE TO
POST-VACCINATION ADVERSE REACTION
Like any other medications, vaccines can trigger unexpected adverse allergic reactions. If such an emergency occurs, CLL Immunisation Centre is well-prepared to initiate a timely response to ensure the health and safety of the patient. The facility is equipped with emergency life-saving medications as well as rigorous protocols to notify the on-site Emergency Medical Team, which is staffed by experienced and skilled healthcare professionals. Observers are stationed at post-vaccination observation areas and all patients are closely monitored by the Emergency Medical Team over CCTV for any signs of a pending emergency.
In the case of a medical emergency, the AEFI (Adverse Events Following Immunisation) Management Room has been equipped with hospital beds, emergency medications, oxygen lines and other necessary equipment (vital signs monitors, defibrillators, ventilators, etc.) to provide a full spectrum of emergency room-level urgent care. If needed, well-equipped ambulances have been prepared in advance to refer patients to the nearest hospital for further treatment.
