What happens when vaccines go wrong?

If you or a loved one are injured by a vaccine or a vaccine has caused the death of a loved one, there is a program set up by Congress to provide compensation for that injury or death. The program is called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and asking for compensation is a little like a lawsuit. There are, however, important differences. One difference is how compensation is calculated and the reasons for those calculations. The money you can recover, whether recovered through the VICP or through a typical lawsuit, is called, "damages." Damages refers to the specific types of harm for which you can receive money. In the VICP, victims of a vaccine injury can receive compensation for any wages that were lost because of the injury, any past out-of-pocket medical expenses (which were not reimbursable by insurance or another source), and actual future medical needs (also, which are not reimbursable by another source). For these (typically called "economic" damages) you can show these by receipts, tax returns, etc... There is a defined amount which you lost, spent, or will have to spend, and that can often be calculated with precision.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) is a no-fault system that was implemented through federal law in 1988. Its aim is to reduce the number of lawsuits filed against vaccine manufacturers in effort to prevent companies from abandoning the vaccine business, as public health officials and Congress worried there would not be enough manufacturers providing crucial vaccines. The program is financed by a tax of 75 cents per dose, which is paid by the vaccine manufacturers. When you look at the data from this federal program, however, the numbers reveal just how rare it is for someone to claim they were hurt after a vaccination. In fact, over the past three decades, when billions of doses of vaccines have been administered to hundreds of millions of Americans , the program has compensated about 6,600 people for the harm they claimed was caused by vaccines, and about 70 percent of those awards have come through settlement in cases where sufficient evidence was lacking to prove the vaccines were at fault. Although, since the program’s inception, the total amount in compensation paid out amounts to $4.15 billion.
