Improving the Yellow Card reporting site

Welcome to the improved Yellow Card reporting site. Our interactive Drug Analysis Profiles (iDAPs) are now under 'What is being reported', this includes COVID-19 vaccine reports.

We will be continuing to improve our new website platform with enhancements based on user feedback to give you a better, more tailored and transparent reporting experience. Future upgrades will offer new features such as:

  • technology that helps keep you up-to-date with your report as it progresses through MHRA review process and enables you to update your reports.

  • easier access to real-time safety communications and control over alerts, allowing you to switch on and off relevant safety communications.

  • the ability to manage information about healthcare products via a product watch list.

  • visualisation of data that will allow you to view information in a more user friendly, accessible way.

  • for frequent reporters, a search functionality that will allow your previous reports to be found easily.

We welcome your feedback.

Please note that the where possible, the MHRA asks and encourages all Yellow Card reports to be sent electronically instead of paper forms.
