This National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) is a USA program designed to provide monetary compensation for vaccination related injuries (because vaccinations do sometimes cause injuries) while still reducing legal suits to the pharmacuetical companies. Some injuries that can occur because of vaccinations are shock, actual polio, and enceplalopathy. This program allows the companies to continue research and development of new and/or improved vaccines while still allowing some compensation to individuals, or families of individuals, who have been injured by vaccinations.

The toll-free number for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is 1-800-338-2382. Call to obtain an information packet detailing how to file a claim, criteria for eligibility, and the documentation required. For further information write to:

Time is critical for compensation. Injuries must last a certain amount of time and applications must be filed in a certain time frame. If you believe an injury has been sustained get more information ASAP.
