COVID-19 VACCINE MANUFACTURERS ARE EXEMPT FROM LIABILITY

According to the CDC, all vaccines have the potential to cause injury or death. On February 4, 2020, the Secretary of HHS invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness act (PREP Act) and declared COVID-19 to be a public health emergency, warranting liability protection for covered countermeasures, which includes vaccination. If an individual is injured or killed by a COVID-19 vaccine, the manufacturer cannot be held liable per the PREP Act. The only possible recourse should you or a loved one suffer injury or death is to pursue compensation through the Countermeasure Injury Compensation Program, which has a difficult threshold for proving a relationship between an injury and the vaccine, a short statute of limitations, no avenue for appeals and doesn’t pay damages for pain or suffering.

The liability exempt status for vaccine manufacturers is not new. Pharmaceutical companies have enjoyed their liability free status for all vaccinations on the CDC schedule since the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. After large numbers of lawsuits were brought forth for injuries and deaths resulting from the DPT vaccine, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to protect pharmaceutical companies from liability specifically for vaccines. No other product or industry is protected from liability for injury and death in this way.

Without any liability, what incentive is there to ensure the vaccine is as safe as possible?
