The 46th GACVS meeting held virtually from 15–16 May 2023, brought together global experts to address a range of issues in vaccine safety, including 'Safety updates on malaria vaccines' (RTS,S/AS01 and R21/MartixM). A summary of the presentations and recommendations are provided below. The next GACVS meeting will be organized as a joint meeting with the Advisory Committee on Safety of Medicinal Products (ACSoMP) in Geneva, from 13 to 15 November 2023.
