Vaccine Injury Compensation: Most Claims Took Multiple Years and Many Were Settled through Negotiation
Marcia Crosse (au)
Vaccines save lives by preventing disease in the people who receive them. In some instances, however, a vaccine can have severe side effects, including death or an injury requiring lifetime medical care. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) provides compensation for injuries and deaths associated with certain vaccines for medical and other costs. VICP includes an injury table that lists the injuries presumed to be caused by vaccines covered by the program. VICP may also compensate individuals for injuries not on the table; however, in those cases causation is not presumed. Since VICP began in 1988, it has awarded more than $2.8 billion in compensation. This report examined (1) how long it has taken to adjudicate claims and how claims have been adjudicated; (2) the changes to the vaccine injury table; and (3) how the balance of and spending from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund have changed. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
