The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)

Sometimes referred to as The Vaccine Court, the VICP is a program that was created in the 1980’s by The United States Congress to compensate injured individuals and families affected by vaccine side effects.

For the most part, vaccines save countless lives on a daily basis.  In fact, statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) demonstrate dramatic declines in vaccine-preventable diseases when compared with the pre-vaccine era.

However, vaccines can also cause everything from mild to severe and sometimes even life-threatening side effects or injury.  This is why The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created.
