Did Your Child Suffer Injuries After Receiving a Vaccine?
Many adults and children receive vaccines to help prevent disease and serious
health issues. Although adverse health reactions to vaccines are rare,
they do occur, and can change the lives of families forever. Congress

injuries after receiving a vaccine. The fund is available to individuals
of all ages, including adults and children.

Process for Filing a Vaccine Injury Claim
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is available to individuals
regardless of who was at fault. Parents or legal guardians of children,
adults with disabilities due to vaccines, and individuals who are deceased
can file a petition if they received a covered vaccine.
The process for filing a vaccine injury petition:
- Fill out a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims that includes
medical records and documents by medical experts to support your injury
- U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will review your petition
to determine your eligibility
- If your claim is approved you will be paid the appropriate amount in damages
Although the process is meant to be simple and non-adversarial, the reality
is that it is unnecessarily complicated and confusing. Claims often travel
through the government's complex bureaucracy that may require you
to go through hearings in front of an official called the "special
master." We recommended that you hire an attorney for help. There
is NO COST to clients because the program pays for all legal fees.
