The Vaccine Injury Compensation Law
If you or your child suffered a reaction to a vaccination that caused an excess of $1000 in
medical bills or caused injuries that have lasted longer than six months, you may be entitled to
benefits under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (PL 99-660). This federal
compensation system was created by Congress to provide reimbursement for medical and custodial care
expenses or award a fixed amount in the case of a vaccine-related death. As of
February of 2003, 3,482 vaccine victims have received compensation totaling over $1.4 billion.
