when vaccines go a courtin

On November 14, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (1986 Act) had its 37th anniversary. One of the things it created is “vaccine court,” (the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program or VICP) designed to pay Americans for injury or death caused by a vaccine. That may sound good, but while the government created the program with one hand, the other hand was quietly removing all liability from vaccine manufacturers and taking away the constitutional right to sue them. Adding insult to injury, the program caps the amount that can be paid for a death following vaccination at a mere $250,000.

Nearly $5.1 billion has been awarded to over 10,000 Americans for injury and death under the VICP, according to a November 2023 report by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). That same report reveals 5,908 individuals or their families were paid compensation for injuries or deaths associated with influenza vaccines alone. But influenza no longer holds the top spot. That dubious honor now belongs to the COVID shots, a frightening reality given how new they are. Since they were rolled out under Emergency Use Authorizations, the COVID shots are being examined in a similar closed-door process in the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), but their recent addition to the CDC’s childhood immunization schedule indicates they should eventually shift to the VICP.
