Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Know the Facts

The administration of vaccines is extremely important to public health. In fact, each year in the U.S., 250 million vaccines are administered to protect individuals and the general public from potentially deadly diseases.

While most children and adults who receive vaccines experience no negative side effects, that isn't always the case. With a small fraction of vaccines, injuries occur, although the injuries are usually not due to the vaccine itself, but to the way the shot was administered.
