Injury Compensation Programs

Two HRSA programs give individuals harmed by vaccines and, in the case of declared national health emergencies, other medical interventions, a streamlined system for compensation for their injuries.

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines given routinely to children and adults, such as seasonal flu vaccine, measles, mumps, rubella or polio.

Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program provides compensation to individuals for serious physical injuries or deaths from pandemic, epidemic, or security countermeasures, such as the 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine (swine flu vaccine), Tamiflu, Relenza or Peramivir, identified in declarations issued by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
