Vaccines injure children, and the U.S. government has an entire division set up to compensate families for that injury.
As of March 30, 2018, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program had paid $106.5 million (THIS YEAR) for 283 claims since the beginning of the 2018 fiscal year. Drugwatch’s legal partners are accepting vaccine injury cases.
Since 1988, over 18,426 petitions have been filed with the VICP. Over that 29-year time period, 16,555 petitions have been adjudicated, with 5,581 of those determined to be compensate-able, while 10,974 were dismissed. Keep in mind the CDC estimates that only about 10% of adverse events are reported. Total compensation paid over the life of the vaccine injury compensation program is approximately $3.7 billion. 1
Vaccine Injury is FAR more frequent than one in million.
- The US Dept of HHS and the CDC claims that being injured by a vaccine is one in a million (3,597 compensated claims out of 3.1 billion vaccine doses.) Let’s take a look at that number. The CDC recommends every person receive 72 doses of 16 vaccines (note one MMR shot is considered to be 3 doses, same for DTaP), but let’s use a smaller number and say those that do get vaccinated, only receive 40 of the recommended doses. That comes out to be one in every 20,000 kids is damaged and compensated
- (3.1 billion ÷ 40 doses each ÷ 3,597 victims).
- But if you take into consideration the CDC also reports only 1% of adverse reactions are actually reported.
- Voluntary reporting makes accurate numbers impossible. So with all our computer technology why not automate it? It was. When vaccine injury was covered in automated reporting there was 100 fold increase in identified reactions
