Vaccines and the Law

In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to help ensure vaccine safety and availability, and to compensate people injured by vaccination.

The act established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to compensate those who suffer certain vaccine-related injuries or death. The act also required health-care providers and manufacturers of specified vaccines to report certain serious adverse reactions they encounter. FDA and CDC keep track of these reports through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS.

VAERS tracks serious vaccine reactions, not common fevers and soreness from shots. Serious reactions include death, life-threatening illness, hospitalization, and disability resulting from a vaccine. Patient identity is kept confidential.

Monthly reports from VAERS are sent to FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, which evaluates possible safety issues. Anyone may file a report. To receive a VAERS reporting form, call (1-800) 822-7967.

From its beginning to September 1993, VAERS received more than 20,000 reports. Though it helps in assessing the number of adverse reactions to vaccines nationwide, VAERS is a "passive" system that relies on reporting from health-care professionals and others. For instance, VAERS does not directly compare the incidence of disease among recently vaccinated people with disease among people who have not been vaccinated.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program protects doctors and manufacturers from lawsuits while providing compensation for those injured from vaccines. It's designed to be easier and faster than traditional legal remedies for medical injuries.

Individuals claiming more than $1,000 in expenses from vaccine injury may be eligible for as much as $250,000 compensation. Any death from a vaccine is awarded the highest amount in compensation.

Some injuries may be compensated without proof that the vaccine was at fault. These are spelled out in a vaccine injury table. Most injuries must occur within hours or days of a vaccine to be considered a result of the shot.
