Dr. Green Mom- National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

What is the NVICP

National Vaccine Information Center:

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) was created under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (PL-99-660) enacted by Congress to institute vaccine safety reforms in the U.S. mass vaccination system and to create a federal no-fault, non-adversarial alternative to suing vaccine manufacturers and providers in civil court. The law also contained requirements for doctors to:

  1. give parents vaccine benefit and risk information before vaccination
  2. report serious health problems, injuries, hospitalizations and deaths following vaccination to a centralized federally operated Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)
  3. write down serious health problems following vaccination in the individual’s permanent medical record
  4. keep a permanent record of vaccinations given, including manufacturer’s names and lots numbers
