Vaccine injuries, although rare, have long been a concern where vaccination mandates are in effect. With the advent of COVID-19 vaccines, many more people are wondering what steps they would take to receive compensation for an injury alleged to have been caused by a vaccination. This course explains the workings of the Vaccine Injury Table and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) under the auspices of Special Masters of the United States Court of Federal Claims, from filing through final judgment, as well as that of the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, which is currently applicable to COVID-19 vaccines. The course also addresses legal immunities of vaccine manufacturers and administrators, OSHA requirements for reporting work-related vaccine injuries, the applicability of Worker’s Compensation to such injuries, and routes of compensation outside of the existing federal compensation programs.
