Who Can File A Claim
Under the
Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

Under the rules of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP or VICP), people who are eligible to file injury claims include:

Infants, children and adolescents, or adults who received vaccines covered by the NVICP.

In order to receive compensation, other legal requirements must be met, including:

  1. File an injury or death claim within the time limit specified by the statute of limitations,
  2. Provide required proof of injury,
  3. Show a reasonable basis for concluding the injury was actually caused by the vaccination.

Adults or children who think they were injured after receiving trivalent influenza vaccines that are covered by the NVICP.

An adult or a child who receives a trivalent influenza vaccine in the U.S. within the applicable time limits is eligible to apply for compensation under the VICP, even if the vaccine administered is licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) exclusively for adults.

Individuals who receive a covered vaccine outside of the U.S. or its trust territories, provided:

  1. The person was, at the time of vaccination, a U.S. citizen serving abroad as a member of the Armed Forces or as an employee of the U.S., or a dependent of such a citizen; or
  2. The vaccine's manufacturer was located in the U.S. and the person returned to the U.S. within 6 months after the date of vaccination.

Victim's Legal Representative

When the victim is not of legal adult age, or is not capable of acting on his or her own behalf, a legal representative responsible for handling the victim's affairs is necessary.

For infants, children, and adolescents, that representative is normally the parents or the custodial parent in case of divorce. If not the parents, then the legal guardian is responsible.

If the victim is an adult, a court appointed or recognized legal guardian or representative fills the role.

In case of death, the responsibility transfers to the executor of the victim's estate.
