STARSS ("Stimulated Telephone-Assisted Rapid Safety Surveillance") is a clinical study evaluating an advanced system which finds out in real-time when people visit a doctor, nurse or hospital or call Health Direct for health advice after they receive a vaccine.

True real-time vaccine safety surveillance means monitoring vaccine safety from the moment the vaccine is administered.

For the first time in Australia, the STARSS system makes true real-time safety surveillance a reality. STARSS finds out when people seek health advice after a vaccination, which will help develop strategies to improve the safety of vaccines.

How to Become a STARSS Investigator For GPs and nurses: eligibility to apply for 40 category 1 QI and CPD points and nurse CPD programs.
