Covered Vaccines

What vaccines are covered by the NVICP?

We believe vaccines are generally safe. However, we do know that in very rare cases, a vaccine can cause a serious problem, such as a severe allergic reaction, injury or even death. In these uncommon scenarios, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) may provide compensation to individuals who file a petition and are found to have been injured by vaccine. Even in cases in which such a finding is not made, petitioners may receive compensation through a settlement.


In 2016, the government awarded over $230 Million Dollars to vaccine injury victims. The vaccines covered by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation are below:

  • Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis or any combination of Diphtheria, Tetanus Toxoid, and Pertussis (“Whooping Cough”) antigen-containing vaccines (for example, DTP, DTaP, P, DTP-Hib)

  • Hemophilus Influenzae Type b polysaccharide conjugate vaccines (Hib)

  • Hepatitis A vaccines (Hep A)

  • Hepatitis B vaccines (Hep B)

  • Human Papilloma Virus vaccines

  • Measles virus containing vaccines, alone, or in combination with other vaccines (for example, MMR, MR, M)

  • Measles-Mumps-Rubella or any combination of Measles, Mumps, and Rubella(“German Measles”) virus containing vaccines (for example, MMR, MR, R)

  • Pneumococcal (“Pneumonia”) conjugate vaccines

  • Polio inactivated virus containing vaccines (IPV)

  • Polio live virus containing vaccines (OPV)

  • Rotavirus vaccines containing live, oral, rhesus-based rotavirus

  • Rubella virus containing vaccines, alone, or in combination with other vaccines (for example, MMR, MR, R)

  • Seasonal flu vaccine

  • Tetanus Toxoid, alone, or in combination with other vaccines (for example, TT, Td)

  • Varicella (“Chicken Pox”) vaccines

Not All Vaccines Are Covered

The Vaccination Injury Compensation Program mandates that only certain vaccines are covered. For a full list of covered vaccines, please click the link below. It is important to note that Lawyer’s fees are paid out of the Fund whether you win or lose, as long as the case was filed “in good faith and with a reasonable basis.”
