Injury Compensation Programs

Two of our programs give individuals a streamlined system for compensation for their injuries.

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)

VICP compensates people injured by certain vaccines given routinely to children and adults. These include the seasonal flu vaccine, measles, mumps, rubella or polio.

Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP)

CICP compensates individuals for serious physical injuries or deaths from pandemic, epidemic, or security countermeasures.

This includes 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.
