National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program


Vaccine Damage Awards

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services HRSA division (Health Resources and Services Administration) held a public meeting of the FDA’s Advisory Committee on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) in Rockville, Maryland, September 2-3, 2010, at which several charts were distributed. The chart below “NVICP Statistics Report as of Thursday, September 02, 2010” indicates just how pervasive and costly vaccine damage actually IS in dollars and cents.

Petitioners’ Award Amounts for fiscal years 1989 thru 2010 totaled almost Two Billion Dollars ($1,938,523,762.48) representing 2,503 awards.

Attorneys’ Fees/Costs Payments totaled over an additional Seventy-two Million Dollars ($72,670,865.82).

In excess of an additional Forty-six Million Dollars ($46,424,411.60) was paid out for Attorneys’ Fees/Costs Payments, which probably represented an additional 2,293 claims that were dismissed.

The total outlay was a grand total of $2,057,619,039.90!

These awards validate that vaccine damage does happen—and continues to happen—and much more than Big Pharma acknowledges or the media reports, sadly.

These figures represent only a FRACTION of damages that rightfully should be paid to families that suffered vaccine-induced damages. Thousands, maybe a million or more families, are left with life-long-damaged children and medical bills that will be overwhelmingly expensive and probably not compensated for.

Just imagine if there were over two thousand product injuries from automobiles, baby cribs, or food salmonella poisonings! What would congress do about them? Vaccine damage is no different. Vaccines and their health-damaging toxins need to be investigated.

This is another valid reason for congress to investigate vaccines per se.



Commentary by co-editor Catherine J Frompovich

If 2,503 awards totaled close to Two Billion Dollars, what would the 2,293 dismissed claims have amounted to, if granted or awarded? Probably close to another Two Billion Dollars.

That ‘paltry amount’ represents not quite 21 years [1989 to Sept. 2, 2010] or just one-generation-worth of acknowledged vaccine damage. Then, add to that attorneys fees. If this is what the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program awards master permitted to be paid for vaccine damages that were acknowledged as caused by vaccines, can you imagine what the actual and untold financial and physical damages from vaccines/vaccinations realistically amount to since most adverse events are pooh-poohed by medical doctors as ‘coincidences’?

Please contact your members of Congress and ask that Congress investigates the neurotoxins and other poisons per se in vaccines.
