CHANGES MADE TO THE VACCINE INJURY TABLE

Posted by Richard H. Moeller | Apr 03, 2017 | 0 Comments

Back in December, I wrote here about amendments that were expected to be made to the Vaccine Injury Table (Table) for claims made to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). Those changes officially went into effect on March 21, 2017, and will apply to claims made to the NVICP after that date. The Table lists all vaccines covered by the NVICP and sets forth the injuries associated with them which are entitled to compensation.  As I discussed in that earlier blog, the purpose of the changes is to expand the types of injuries, resulting from vaccines already included on the Table, making it easier for persons with those injuries to receive Richard Moeller - Vaccine Injury Attorneycompensation.

The amendments will expand the types of injuries resulting from administration of certain vaccines already on the Table.  Those injuries consist primarily of shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), vasovagal syncope (loss of consciousness or fainting), and certain neurological conditions following the seasonal flu vaccine, illnesses such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP), acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN or AMSAN), and Miller Fisher Syndrome (FS).
