About SmartVax

SmartVax is the world’s first active national adverse event surveillance system for vaccines.

SmartVax was established in 2014 by Dr Alan Leeb and software developer, Ian Peters, following the cessation of Australia’s national childhood influenza immunisation program as a result of an unanticipated increase in adverse events. Nationally, more than 100 children under 5 years of age had seizures as a result of this program.

SmartVax was born from the belief that there must be a simple way in which health professionals could improve the monitoring of adverse events following immunisation and reassure the public of the safety of vaccines in Australia.

Today, well over 600 clinics and immunisation providers around Australia use SmartVax.
