About the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)
In 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Act was passed by the United States Congress in response to a threat of the vaccine supply due to a DPT vaccine scare in the early 1980s.
This act formed the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) under the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Government. In the event a vaccine causes a serious problem, the VICP may provide financial compensation to those individuals who it finds have been injured by an VICP-covered vaccine.
The most common in types of vaccine injuries include:
Seasonal Flu Vaccine Injuries, SIRVA Injury, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Blood Disorders, Neurological Disorders
