Government Data on Vaccine Injuries


Search the government’s own vaccine injury website, and come to your own conclusions.

Proponents of the government’s vaccine regime continually point to the sterling safety record of vaccines in an attempt to ensure worried parents that nothing will happen to their children. Those who merely question the safety of the government schedule are marginalized by the mainstream media through any number of pejorative names.

What government health officials do not talk about is the existence of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. After a string of lawsuits in the 1980s imperiled vaccine profits, vaccine manufacturers threatened to leave the US market. The government responded by relieving vaccine manufacturers of all legal liability when patients suffered an adverse reaction from a vaccine. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) was set up in 1988 as a substitute to give support to families who were harmed by vaccines.

Information on the number of claims made to the VICP, and the number of those claims that were compensated, through 2013, are available on the government’s website. Although the numbers likely understate the reality, the website is an interesting resource for those seeking information on vaccines.

The government data show that, since 1988, the VICP has awarded almost $3 billion to over 4,000 families who were harmed by vaccines—even though the window to file a claim is so tight that many families miss it, and it is often hard to demonstrate a connection between the shot and the ensuing health issue. In addition, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) receives an average of 30,000 reports each year, 13% of which are considered “serious”—that is, associated with “disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illness, or death.” The government’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) dismisses these reports because they are not “peer reviewed,” but also refuses to provide the peer review needed.

A startling new report has come to our attention by an investigative reporter, whose article was picked up by the Drudge Report, though we haven’t been able to independently verify the information yet. Her report claims that the government removed the latest data from their website to cover up the recent sharp rise in awards for those who made claims to the VICP. The reporter notes that

Since January of 2014, twice as many victims have won court decisions than the previous eight years combined. In these court decisions, a judge ruled the evidence showed vaccines “more likely than not” caused the plaintiff’s injuries.

She also reports that removing the most recent data conceals the fact that the number of vaccine injury cases the government has “conceded” have increased 55% in one year.

We will continue to seek to verify this report independently and will let our readers know more when we have additional information.

Update: It appears as though the government’s vaccine data has been updated. The data can be found here.

    I don’t know if it was “to cover up the recent sharp rise in awards ” but I did notice that HRSA pulled that data and I tried to alert a few interested parties back in March. I have the pdf downloaded from HRSA on Feb 10, 2015 which has data through Feb 2, 2015 and the pdf downloaded from HRSA in March which only includes data up through the end of 2013. VERY SUSPICIOUS and probably illegal under the 1986 Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.

      I would also like to have copies of those PDF data that has been removed, especially since they are now pushing to force mandatory vaccinations on everyone on the planet. This is really bad news considering it is following on the heels of the World Health Organization
      (WHO) being exposed for shipping tetanus vaccine to Kenya to be administered to allo
      females of childbearing age. Those vaccines sent out to 4 different labs reported it was contaminated with human chorionic gonadatrophin (HCG) which would have caused those receiving the vaccines, on the recommended schedule, to form antibodies against any embryo conceived which would have caused early spontaneous abortion and probably permanent sterility. If you can furnish the links maybe we can still pull them up from somewhere.

        I just posted the first 2 files here www files com/set/556e5e150453a I don’t know if they necessarily show what the author here says they show, and now i see as of yesterday they re-added 2014 and 2015 data! www files com/set/556e601282557

      not sure what your email is but i will try to mail them to you. i also posted them online just now here (re add the dots) www files com/set/556e601282557

    the data from 2014 and 2015 shows up on the latest HRSA pdf published June 1 (yesterday as of this writing). I am completely for medical freedom but I don’t think the data shows what this article says. Here are the HRSA pdfs (and site snapshot) that I grabbed in Feb, March and today: (dots removed so that this comment appears- please re-add) www files com/set/556e601282557

    Vaccinations – i know the religious exemption is illegitimately and unconstitutionally being raped – so i claim the “scientific exemption” because the REALITY proves that vaccines are NOT performing at all as claimed, the benefits of mandatory vaccination are simply not existent – the rationale behind mandatory vaccination will NOT prevent outbreaks since both vaccinated and unvaccinated people can be part of an outbreak chain without their knowing it.

    Since reality shows (whooping cough since 2010, the NY Measles outbreak 2014, Ohio mumps outbreak 2014) that people who are NOT vaccinated tend to catch the infectious diseases less than the vaccinated people – their entire premise is backward. When (Ohio) 97% of the sick people WERE vaccinated – the UNVACCINATED people were over 32 TIMES LESS LIKELY to become sick than the vaccinated people who were sick. Hmmm.

    As you can see, i am not a fan of VAXASSINATION THEOLOGY. Please pass that phrase around, and explain that it means the vax theories are faith-based, because faith MANDATES a lack of proof. Reality shows damages, no benefits in outbreak reduction, and no protection from infectious diseases in some vaccine cases. Therefore, the logic behind mandatory vaccination is fatally flawed.

    Quoting from the article..

    “The government responded by relieving vaccine manufacturers of all legal
    liability when patients suffered an adverse reaction from a vaccine.
    The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) was set up in 1988 as a
    substitute to give support to families who were harmed by vaccines.”

    This is not entirely factually correct..

    No. 09–152. Argued October 12, 2010—Decided February 22, 2011

    “The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NCVIA or Act) created a no-fault compensation program to stabilize a vaccine market adversely affected by an increase in vaccine-related tort litigation and to facilitate compensation to claimants who found pursuing legitimate vaccine-inflicted injuries too costly and difficult. The Act provides that a party alleging a vaccine-related injury may file a petition for compensation in the Court of Federal Claims, naming the Health and Human Services Secretary as the respondent; that the court must resolve the case by a specified deadline; and that the claimant can then decide whether to accept the court’s judgment or reject it and seek tort relief from the vaccine manufacturer. Awards are paid out of a fund created by an excise tax on each vaccine dose. As a quid pro quo, manufacturers enjoy significant tort-liability protections. Most importantly, the Act eliminates manufacturer liability for a vaccine’s unavoidable, adverse side effects.”
