Contribution of real-life studies in France during the COVID-19 pandemic and for the national pharmaco-epidemiological surveillance of COVID-19 vaccines - 03/02/23
During the COVID-19 pandemic, EPI-PHARE, a scientific group in pharmaco-epidemiology created by the French National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) and the French National Health Insurance (Cnam), has reoriented its work program to enlighten health authorities in this health crisis. By exploiting massive and complex data of the French Health Data System (SNDS) from the beginning of the first lockdown in France in March 2020, we were able to publish numerous results on the use, benefits and risks of medicines, on the risk factors of COVID-19 before and after vaccination, and on the benefits and risks of COVID-19 vaccines.
