Frequently Asked Questions
What is CAERS?
CAERS stands for Canadian Adverse Event Reporting System.
What is the goal of CAERS?
To have a place for people that may have had adverse events to be able to document it and find help. CAERS is also collecting data to assist medical doctors and medical researchers that have a different interpretation of Covid-19 and on the safety of the inoculations produced for Covid-19, which have been given to the public. CAERS will continue to advocate for public panels and public debates with respect to the above mentioned. CAERS is working to make these public panels and debates a reality in Canada.
Who will be documenting this?
First, a submission will be done by yourself. If you choose the option to have a follow up/triage, you will be contacted by one of our trained individuals for this system with Health Care experience. All staff have signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement.
Will my story be shared?
Your testimony will only be shared to the public if you choose to make your follow up after your submission.
What service will you be providing?
We will give you a chance to have some support by talking to a professional and having a place to feel like you are not alone, and someone is working to get you help.
What kind of help can you provide?
CAERS will provide you trained professional staff that can give you a place to share your story without having to go through many layers to have a place to document your possible adverse event.
What separates your service from the one offered by PHAC?
CAERS does not discriminate with respect to your possible adverse event. You will not have to go through your GP, Public Health or Health Canada. CAERS is a red flag system and does not serve as a diagnostic system. This type of reporting is supported by “Vanessa’s Law” under the Protecting Canadians from Unsafe Drugs Act of 2014.
What other service can you provide besides the documentation, and follow up?
We will protect your personal information and other triage notes and will be on standby to either have medical professional to look at it for you to get a diagnosis when it becomes available, and/or legal assistance to apply for compensation under the Canadian vaccine injury support program.
Do you charge anything for this service?
No, we do not, as we believe anyone having possibly had an adverse event due to the present Covid-19 inoculation, should not be left suffering alone without some help immediately or long term.
How is my Information Protected?
All information is handled according to P.I.P.E.D.A - Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act
Who is a part of CAERS?
As the present situation here in Canada is tense, we will not disclose who is a part of CAERS. We wish it would be safer to have a difference of opinion and choice towards our civil liberties, but trust in government and media is currently lacking. We will not disclose any information regarding who works with CAERS until that bridge of trust is present.
