Assessment of sex-specific differences in adverse events following immunization reporting in Ontario, 2012–15
Sex differences in AEFI reporting within passive surveillance systems are not well-understood.
We assessed sex-specific trends in passive AEFI surveillance in Ontario, Canada over four years.
