    Vaccine Injury, Maglio Law Firm:"If you or your child has been injured as a result of a vaccination, we may be able to help. We represent families in obtaining compensation for injuries resulting from vaccinations, including claims against physicians negligently administering vaccines, claims against vaccine manufacturers, and claims under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established by the federal government in the mid 1980's to protect vaccine manufacturers and health care personnel administering vaccines from liability due to vaccine related injuries. An excise tax was imposed upon the manufacture of vaccines and revenues placed into a fund to compensate those suffering complications of vaccination. Unfortunately, most parents, teachers, physicians, and even attorneys, are unaware of the existence of this program. In addition to the NVICP, other avenues are available to assist families suffering the results of a vaccine related injury. These avenues often include the traditional remedies available through medical malpractice and products liability actions."

Located in Vienna, Virginia, NVIC is the oldest and largest parent-led organization advocating reformation of the mass vaccination system and is responsible for launching the vaccine safety movement in America in the early 1980ís. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education. NVIC provides assistance to parents whose children have suffered vaccine reactions; promotes research to evaluate vaccine safety and effectiveness as well as to identify factors which place individuals at high risk for suffering vaccine reactions; and monitors vaccine research, development, policy-making and legislation. NVIC supports the right of citizens to exercise informed consent and make educated, independent vaccination decisions for themselves and their children."

This federal compensation system was created by Congress to provide reimbursement for medical and custodial care expenses or award a fixed amount in the case of a vaccine-related death. As of February of 2003, 3,482 vaccine victims have received compensation totaling over $1.4 billion.

    National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, Toxic Exposure Study Trust Foundation:"The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) effective October 1, 1988. The law was passed in a climate of increasing lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers, threats by manufacturers to discontinue vaccine production, and dwindling vaccine supply. NVICP awards compensation for injuries from any one of the following vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP, DTAP, DT, TT, OT, TD), measles, mumps, rubella (MMR or any components), polio (OPV or IPV), hepatitis B, Hemophilus influenzae type b (HiB) and varicella (chicken pox) vaccines. Since its inception, the program has received over 5,000 claims seeking compensation; 85 percent of these claims were for vaccines administered prior to 1988. Of those 5,000 claims, over 1,100 awards totaling $800 million in compensation have been made to individuals or families. Compensation is awarded when there is evidence that a condition listed on the Vaccine Injury Table was caused by a vaccine covered by NVICP and when no other factor explains the condition."

    National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:"In the early 1980s, reports of harmful side effects following the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis) vaccine posed major liability concerns for vaccine companies and health care providers, and caused many to question the safety of the DTP vaccine. Parents began filing many more lawsuits against vaccine companies and health care providers. Vaccination rates among children began to fall and many companies that develop and produce vaccines decided to leave the marketplace, creating significant vaccine shortages and a real threat to the Nation's health. The dilemma facing the nation was so great that Congress decided to act. A coalition of physicians, public health organizations, leaders of industry, government representatives and private citizens developed the idea of a no-fault alternative to the tort system for resolving vaccine injury claims. Lawmakers passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (P. L.99-660), which established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)."

    Vaccine Related Injuries, Vaccine Injury Alliance:"In the United States, vaccinating children against infectious diseases has been one of the most effective public health initiatives ever undertaken. Vaccinations have reduced vaccine-preventable disease by more than 95 percent. But that is not the whole story. Unfortunately, vaccination programs also carry a human cost. The United States Government acknowledges that "[a] vaccine can have severe side effects, including death or disabling conditions requiring lifetime medical care." 1 These reactions can be "devastating" to affected families. 2 Conditions that may be associated with vaccines include Autism, neurological injuries (such as encephalopathy, neuropathy, and transverse myelitis), seizures, and a number of auto-immune disorders (such as Guillan Barre Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, and arthritis)."
