Adverse Drug Events
Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) ( See Adverse Drug Event Terms and Definitions) should be documented in the patient’s medical record. If the ADE is serous or unexpected, ( See Definition of Serious Adverse Drug Event) it will be reported to the MedWatch reporting program or the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as described in the Indian Health Manual.
