Let's treat Americans injured by the COVID-19 vaccine fairly

It’s time we afford individuals who are injured from the COVID-19 vaccine the same recourse we provide individuals harmed by other vaccines. Under The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, vaccine manufacturers and parties who administer vaccines cannot be sued.

In exchange for immunity, vaccine companies pay a 75-cent tax on every vaccine they sell. These funds become part of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). If a person is injured by a covered vaccine, they can file a NVICP claim.

The NVICP permits recovery for out-of-pocket expenses, medical bills, costs associated with rehabilitation and recovery services, future medical costs, current and future lost wages and up to $250,000 in pain, suffering, and emotional damages.

The NVICP also covers the claimant’s legal fees. In 2020, the average NVICP award exceeded $250,000. Since its inception, the fund has paid out over $4.6 billion dollars.
