Proposed Changes to Add the Category of Vaccines Recommended for Pregnant Women to the Vaccine Injury Table

Posted by Nikki Nobbe | Aug 29, 2019 | 0 Comments

There may be some good news coming to pregnant women who have suffered adverse reactions to certain vaccines. The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services has proposed amending the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) Vaccine Injury Table  to include vaccines recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for routine administration in pregnant women.

The CDC has long recommended that pregnant women receive a whooping cough vaccine and flu shot during each pregnancy. More specifically, the CDC recommends the Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine and the Influenza (Inactivated) (IIV) vaccine. In certain circumstances, the CDC recommends that pregnant women receive other vaccines before, during, or after pregnancy.

The Vaccine Injury Table currently lists all vaccines covered by the NVICP and their associated injuries. If this amendment is approved, the Vaccine Injury Table will be expanded to include any vaccines that the CDC recommends for pregnant women, not just those now on the Table. This expansion will make it easier for pregnant women who suffer an injury from one of the recommended vaccines to receive compensation.
