The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 following years of often frivolous lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers and health professionals, even though similar lawsuits in the UK against vaccine manufacturers failed to find that the DPT vaccine caused vaccine injuries.

The NVICP was created as “a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system for resolving vaccine injury petitions.”

Those who think they have suffered a vaccine injury can file a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims – the Vaccine Court. A court-appointed special master eventually decides if the claim should be compensated or dismissed.
