Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants who report a health symptom within 6 weeks of vaccination [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    As this is a pilot study, we want to first determine if people will report health problems. Therefore, we will assess the number of participants who report a health problem within 6 weeks of vaccination.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Sensitivity of the patient reporting compared to medical record [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will compare information provided by participants for moderate-to-severe health problems with the medical record to determine sensitivity of reporting.

  • Specificity of the patient reporting compared to medical record [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will compare information provided by participants for moderate-to-severe health problems with the medical record to determine specificity of reporting.
