As vaccine mandates are ramping up due to continued pressure from the Biden administration, those who are experiencing rare complications from the jab are falling through the cracks, even in programs that designed to help them.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or “the vaccine court,” was established by Congress 35 years ago to assist with securing damages for children who experienced adverse reactions to vaccines, like the measles shot, that are required to enter public school. Over the years the program has paid out over $4 billion in total damages but so far not a cent has been paid to cases related to the COVID-19 jab, according to the LA Times.
Earlier in the summer Representatives Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) and Fred Upton (R-MI) introduced a bill aimed at addressing problems in the vaccine court system. A spokesperson for Doggett suggested the bill may pave the way for victims with COVID-19 vaccine injuries to receive compensation.
Determining the number of potential cases for these programs, should they begin to take damages for the COVID-19 vaccine, is difficult to assess. But if you take the data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) at face value, there have been over 13,000 deaths and over 54,000 hospitalizations following the shot since mid August. Presumably a portion of these reports would have a case for compensation.
However, its should be noted VAERS is open-source, which means that reporting is not always credible and a report does not prove a death or reaction following inoculation was caused by the vaccine. For example, the largest percentage of reported deaths are found in the 81+ age group, where the chance of death following vaccination from other causes is significantly higher.
