Uncensored: US Government Pays Out Over $4 Billion for Vaccine Injuries and Deaths

A Dec. 1, 2018 update by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) on the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) reported that the total amount of awards to children and adults who have been injured or died after receiving federally recommended childhood vaccines has surpassed $4 billion. The VICP was created by Congress under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 as a federal compensation system alternative to vaccine injury lawsuits filed in civil court. The HRSA report reveals that over the past 30 years (since 1989), the VICP has received 20,123 petitions claiming vaccine injury and death, out of which 18,000 claims have been resolved. Of those 17,576 cases, 6,313 cases (about two out of three claims) have received compensation awards via settlements or judgments. The issue at hand is that the number of petitions to the VICP has dramatically increased over the last few years. Approximately $1 billion (a quarter of the total amount of payout since 1989) has been given out to vaccine-injured victims in just the last four years. This information, which is public knowledge, is routinely censored by the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media, so that the only places one can read a report about these statistics is in the alternative media.

Fraud Uncovered in U.S. Government’s Claim that Vaccines do not Cause Autism – Will Congress and DOJ Act?

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of Children’s Health Defense (CHD) and Rolf Hazlehurst, the father of a vaccine-injured child have petitioned Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate the conduct of two DOJ attorneys, Vincent Matanoski and Lynn Ricciardella. The two attorneys represented the Secretary of Health and Human Services in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), otherwise known as the “Vaccine Court”, in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP), which ruled that vaccines do not cause autism. The alleged actions of the two attorneys in the OAP were fraudulent and obstructed justice. Kennedy and Hazlehurst allege that Matanoski and Ricciardella acted together to intentionally misrepresent the opinion of one of their own witnesses, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, to conceal evidence of his true opinion from the Special Masters who presided in the “Vaccine Court” and the petitioners who were seeking justice and compensation. The evidence that Matanoski and Ricciardella concealed was a report authored by Dr. Zimmerman showing how vaccines may cause autism in a subset of children with underlying mitochondrial issues. After Dr. Zimmerman submitted his report, the DOJ attorney informed Dr. Zimmerman that he would no longer be needed as a witness. Zimmerman’s full opinion was devastating to the government’s case. Simply stated, it was now entirely possible that the government would lose thousands of the OAP cases. The cost could be into the billions and the fund that compensated the vaccine injured would be bankrupted. Even worse, the government’s claim that vaccines are “safe and effective” would evaporate and the claim that “vaccines don’t cause autism” would be debunked.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Demands the Office of the Inspector General and Congress Investigate Fraud in Vaccine Court by Denying Autism Vaccine Injuries

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of Children’s Health Defense (CHD), and Rolf Hazlehurst, parent of a vaccine-injured child, petitioned the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of Inspector General (OIG), and the Senate and House Judiciary Committees today to investigate actions taken by federal personnel during the “Vaccine Court” Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP). Recently discovered evidence provided by Kennedy and Hazlehurst details obstruction of justice and appallingly consequential fraud by two DOJ lawyers who represented the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 2007. These actions led to a denial of justice and compensation for over 5,000 families who filed claims of vaccine injury leading to autism in their children. The fraud by the two DOJ attorneys directly influenced the 2011 Bruesewitz v. Wyeth Supreme Court decision which all but shut the door forever for families seeking redress for vaccine injury in the civil court system. Since this miscarriage of justice, roughly one million children have been diagnosed with autism. An unknown percentage of these cases are the result of vaccine injury.

Unable to Sue Big Pharma, Vaccine Injury Victims Now Being Denied Legal Counsel in Vaccine Court

How does the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) and the Federal Court of Claims deprive petitioners, who are seeking compensation for their injuries, the opportunity to seek and retain legal counsel? Very cleverly. But it takes some understanding of how legal representation in the program has evolved and more importantly, how fees are paid. Today, our government is shutting the door on those who have been injured or have died as a result of a vaccine.

Man Crippled by Flu Shot and “Life Ruined Forever” Speaks Out About His Experience with the Vaccine Court

Health Impact News may be the only news source currently publishing the quarterly Department of Justice (DOJ) reports on settlements for vaccine injuries and deaths in the Vaccine Court. After publishing the most recent report, U.S. Government Continues to Pay Out Millions to Victims Injured by the Flu Shot, one man who was crippled by the flu shot in 2013 spoke out on social media regarding his experience in trying to get compensation from the Vaccine Court. CDC doctors themselves allegedly diagnosed him with a crippling disease what was a result of the toxins in the flu shot. Formerly a very active athletic man prior to receiving a flu shot in 2013, Brett is now confined to a wheelchair and states that his life has been "ruined forever." And yet the Vaccine Court, where cases of vaccine injuries and deaths are litigated against U.S. attorneys, is allegedly only offering Brett $45,000 for his lifelong crippling vaccine injury.

U.S. Government Continues to Pay Out Millions to Victims Injured by the Flu Shot

The federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services just concluded their first meeting of 2018 on March 8th. These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines. Drug manufacturers in the vaccine market can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death. This has resulted in a huge increase of vaccines entering the market, and the U.S. government, through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is the largest purchaser of these vaccines, spending in excess of $4 billion taxpayer dollars each year to purchase these vaccines. If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached. As far as we know, Health Impact News is the only media source that publishes these reports each quarter. The March 8, 2018 report states that 181 cases were adjudicated during the 3-month time period between 11/16/17 –2/15/18, with 142 compensated. But for some reason, the DOJ report only lists 86 of the settlements, leading one to wonder why only these particular cases were listed. 63 of the 86 cases were for injuries due to the flu vaccine, making the annual flu shot the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., by far.

Government Vaccine Injury Report Continues to Prove Flu Vaccines are Destroying Lives

The federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services just concluded their second meeting of 2017 on December 8th. These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.

If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached. As far as we know, Health Impact News is the only media source that publishes these reports each quarter. 85 cases were listed in the December 2017 report, specifying the vaccine, the injury, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement. 71 of the 85 cases were for injuries due to the flu vaccine.

U.S. Government Continues to Pay Damages for Vaccine Injuries: No Liability for Drug Makers

The December 2016 meeting of the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines and the Department of Justice report on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths reveals that vaccines produced and distributed in the United States carry great risks and cause harm in many people. The American public is largely unaware that there is a vaccine court known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). This program was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines. Drug manufacturers in the vaccine business can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death. This has resulted in a huge increase of vaccines entering the market, and the U.S. government, through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is the largest purchaser of these vaccines, spending in excess of $4 billion taxpayer dollars each year to purchase these vaccines. If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached. The most recent report was issued on December 2, 2016 which covered the period from 8/16/16 – 11/15/16. 222 cases were adjudicated. 131 of them were listed in the report. 98 of the 131 cases settled were for injuries involving the flu vaccine, making the flu vaccine the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., harming more people than all the other vaccines combined.

US Vax Court Sees 400% Spike in Vaccine Injuries, Flu Shot Wins Top Honors for Biggest Payout

Vaccine injury cases are on the rise people, so if you’ve got your head in the sand and you haven’t been paying attention, it’s time to wake up. Here’s a little background for those of you just getting started. Ronnie Reagan… almost 30 years ago to the day, the 40th president of the United States signed away the rights of Americans to sue vaccine makers, replacing them with a law that forces families who have suffered vaccine injury or death to sue the U.S. government instead of a pharmaceutical company. As a result, special masters from the United States Special Claims Court, also known for our purposes as the vaccine court, are given full authority as judge with no jury to decide the fate of Americans who have had the unfortunate ‘luck’ to be stricken by a vaccine injury — which can range from chronic, mild symptoms to death.

Does the Vaccine Court Violate America’s 7th Amendment?

With the upcoming 30th anniversary of the signing into law by President Ronald Reagan (Nov 14, 1986) of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), I want to start the conversation about several areas of injustice of this Act. The signing of the NCVIA in 1986 established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) or commonly known as the Vaccine Court. The law also established VAERS, requires the CDC to develop and distribute vaccine information statements (VIS) for each vaccine administered, established a committee within the Institute of Medicine to review the literature on vaccine reactions, and created the Vaccine Injury Trust Fund to provide compensation for injuries or death from childhood vaccines. When faced with the seriousness of a vaccine injury, one seeks the comforting voice of an experienced attorney from the vaccine bar. Most of us do not know that several attorneys associated with the vaccine bar have gone to great personal financial hardship and sacrificing their own family life. Our government is closing the door on those who have been injured seeking compensation from the Vaccine Court, and one subtle way is making it more difficult to be represented by legal counsel.
