National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program : Provisions & Issues Paperback / softback
Edited by Preston Torres
Vaccines save lives by preventing disease in the people who receive them.
In some instances, however, a vaccine can have severe side effects, including death or an injury requiring lifetime medical care.
VICP provides compensation to people for injuries and deaths associated with certain vaccines for medical and other costs.
This book examines how long it has taken to adjudicate claims and how claims have been adjudicated; the changes to the vaccine injury table; and how the balance of and spending from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund have changed, among other objectives.
