The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program ("VICP") is run by the Department of Health & Human Services. Most Americans are surprised to learn that vaccines can and do cause injury, disability and death. Some notable facts about this program:
Claims for vaccine injury have been paid by the VICP since 1988.
The money to pay American citizens for vaccine injury comes from a tax on every vaccine given, vaccine makers do NOT contribute to this program (they operate liability-free).
17,835 claims have been filed by Americans for vaccine injury. Of those, 1,219 were filed by family members for the death of a loved one.
Injuries vaccines can cause include Encephalopathy, anaphylactic shock, Brachial Neuritis, any acute complication or sequela (including death) of an illness, chronic arthritis, Thrombocytopenic purpura, and Paralytic Polio Intussusception, to name just a few of the Table Injuries described by the VICP.
As of February 1, 2017, the VICP has paid Americans $3.584 billion dollars for vaccine injury (source).
