User-friendly VAERS Database
(Note: the info on this page is current as of 8/12/03. Our eternal gratitude to Steven Rubin for his great work on this. - FY Webmaster)
intrigued the computer programmer in me, so I accepted the challenge and
created a Web-searchable database. This data covers the
period of time from the start of the program in 1990 through the end of
2002, and is available at:
I wrote a program to read all the files and merge them into a single "Microsoft Access" database for computer-savvy folk and those who wish to do extensive research. This is not necessary for most people, since the searchable database is on the Web.
I have posted this database to the web so that anyone can download it. Each record of the database is a single VAERS event, and it has all of the information in it (symptoms, vaccinations, manufacturer, lot number, etc.) "Access" has a query language that can be used to search this database. In addition, it can export its data to other database systems.
things to note about this database:
(2) I created a query in this database, but I never did anything with it, so it is worthless. You can delete it and build your own.
(3) While processing this data, I found a few errors in the raw data which I corrected.
full 12-year database is about 76 megabytes, but on the web it is compressed
into a 27 megabyte file. For more info and to see a sample Table and form,
Good luck. If you have any questions, let me know.
