VACCINE INJURY LAWSUITS

For decades, vaccines have prevented many fatal diseases and saved millions of lives. In most cases, vaccines cause only mild and temporary side effects. Rarely, however, vaccines can cause serious injuries and conditions. A vaccine injury is any harmful side effect that occurs after a routine vaccine that leads to a permanent or recurring illness or condition. Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), Flu and Hepatitis vaccines are the most likely to result in adverse health conditions.

What is Vaccine Injury?

Routine vaccinations can sometimes result in certain health conditions and illnesses. The most common vaccine-related injuries include shoulder pain, fever, and delayed reactions that may occur between one to four weeks after the vaccine was administered. Serious, but rare, injuries from vaccines include brain damage, paralysis and death.

What is Happening with Vaccine Injury?

The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have implemented systems to analyze reported events related to vaccines and to determine the relationship between a particular injury and the vaccine. To address injuries from various vaccines, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created, which determines whether specific injuries caused by a vaccine are eligible for compensation. The vaccine court that adjudicates these cases was designed as an alternative to lawsuits for people who have been harmed by vaccines.

Covered vaccines include Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Haemorphilus influenzae type b, Hepatitis A and B, Human papillomavirus, Seasonal Influenza (flu shot), Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), Meningococcal, Pneumococcal conjugate, Polio, Rotavirus, and Varicella.

According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2017, over 3.4 billion doses of vaccines were administered in the United States. For this time period, approximately 6,400 were adjudicated by the court, and of those cases, 4,408 were compensated or settled. However, the number of petitions has continued to increase in recent years. As of the end of 2018, payouts by the NVCIP reached $4 billion.
