What is being done to help those affected?
A knowledgeable and qualified attorney may be able to help if you or someone you know has suffered from an adverse vaccine reaction.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created by the federal government in 1986 to compensate individuals, or families of individuals, who have been injured by vaccinations. The vaccines covered under the NVICP are diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, hepatitis B, chicken pox, and rotravirus. Injuries resulting from these vaccinations include anaphylaxis, paralytic polio, and encephalopathy.

Compensation for vaccine injuries are under the jurisdiction of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, you must first file a petition with the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. Your claim will be reviewed by a Special Master appointed by the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. To qualify, you must be able to show that the injury was caused by the vaccination and the extent of injuries. Decisions of the Special Masters may be appealed to the United States Court of Federal Claims.
 



Is there a time limit for filing claims?
Yes. In the case of an injury, the effects must have continued at least six months after vaccine administration and the claim must be filed within 36 months after first symptoms appear. In the case of a death, the claim must be filed within 24 months of the death and within 48 months after the onset of the vaccine-related injury from which the death occurred.
 



Are vaccines necessary?
There is no question that vaccines have reduced or in some cases even eliminated the risk of certain diseases. However, there is a preponderance of evidence demonstrating that vaccines are not without risk.
