In the 1980’s, all four vaccine manufacturers threatened to stop making vaccines unless the government offered them “protection” from lawsuits. I have a simple solution to the problem.

Why do vaccine manufacturers have liability protection?
Because in the 1980’s, the four vaccine manufacturers got together and threatened to stop making vaccines unless the lawsuits stopped.
Congress obliged and we have the system we have today where, if you are vaccine injured, getting the compensation you deserve can be a hit or miss proposition.
For the current COVID vaccines, in particular, it is definitely a “miss” proposition.
There are two vaccine programs:
- Vaccine injury compensation program (VICP): For any injury from a vaccine that is listed on the childhood vaccine schedule. Established in 1986. The creation of VAERS was part of this (VAERS started operating in 1990). $4B given out since inception. But the amount that is given out varies from year to year (depending on how much the party in power wants it to pay out). You can bring in a lawyer. Payouts can be in the millions if you are willing to fight.
- Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP): For injury from EUA products. Established by the PREP Act in 2005. Since 2010, when they first started giving out money, have only given out money 29 times. They only pay for lost wages and unpaid medical bills. $6M total has been given out over the last 10 years. There is a $375K max per person. No judges. No lawyers. They make the decision. If you appeal, you appeal to them. Good luck on that one.
The absurdity of this
$6M has been paid out over 10 years on the CICP program. Think about that. Hundreds of thousands of people have died or been disabled.
Compare this to the $380M settlement just reached in the Larry Nassar case. Nobody there was disabled or dead.
Is there any member of Congress who is outraged about this? I haven’t heard anyone speak up.
