Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) Data

Aggregate Data as of January 1, 2023

The Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) provides compensation for covered serious injuries or deaths that, based on compelling, reliable, valid, medical and scientific evidence, are found to be directly caused by the administration or use of a covered countermeasure or are determined to meet the requirements of a countermeasure injury table. Temporal association between the administration or use of the covered countermeasure and onset of the injury (i.e., the injury occurs a certain time after the administration or use) is not sufficient, by itself, to prove that an injury is the direct result of a covered countermeasure.

It is important to note that the CICP data only captures the alleged countermeasure(s) and the alleged injuries that CICP requesters list on their Request for Benefits forms (RFB) or claim. The countermeasure or injury listed by the requester on the RFB may or may not be consistent with the requester’s medical documentation or the injury resulting in compensation. While requesters are required to identify the alleged countermeasure on their RFB form, they are not required to list the specific manufacturer or trade name on their RFB form.

Furthermore, while requesters must submit their RFB form within 1 year from the administration or use of the covered countermeasure, requesters are permitted to submit the necessary medical records and other documentation, such as a copy of a requester’s COVID-19 vaccination record, after the RFB is filed. For the majority of COVID-19 countermeasure claims, including COVID-19 vaccine claims, the CICP is still waiting for records and documentation to be submitted.
