Even though a countermeasure injury table for COVID-19 countermeasures has not been established yet, requesters who demonstrate that their injury occurred as the direct result of the administration or use of a covered countermeasure based on compelling, reliable, valid, medical, and scientific evidence, may be eligible for compensation.
CICP data includes the number of claims (also referred to as Requests for Benefits) filed and compensated, and denied compensation by the covered countermeasure. This data is updated monthly.
The CICP Administrative Implementation Interim Final Rule and Final Rule with technical amendments allow the CICP to evaluate and process requests for benefits filed by individuals who experienced serious physical injuries as a direct result of the administration or use of covered countermeasures identified by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in declarations issued under the PREP Act.
The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act, or PREP Act, established liability protections for covered persons (as defined in section 319F-3(i)(2) of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act)). In addition to liability protections, the PREP Act established the CICP to provide compensation to eligible individuals for serious physical injuries or death directly caused by the administration or use of pandemic, epidemic, or security countermeasures identified in declarations issued by the Secretary pursuant to section 319F-3(b) of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 247d-6d).

Seasonal influenza vaccines are not covered countermeasures under the CICP. If you received the seasonal influenza vaccine or other vaccines covered by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) such as tetanus or the human papillomavirus vaccine and think that you had an adverse reaction from one or a combination of these covered vaccines, see the VICP.
