VICP (The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program) is a government program established to compensate vaccine recipients and their families who have been severely injured as a result of adverse effects from certain vaccines. A common question I receive is:
What adverse reactions are compensated under VICP?
Answer: Although rare, adverse reactions to certain vaccines include death, anaphylaxis, encephalopathy, encephalitis, brachealneuritis, seizures, acute disseminated encethalomyelitis arthritis, thrombocytopenic purpura, intussusception, multiple sclerosis, guillan bara syndrome, transverse myelitis, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), opsocionus-myoclonus syndrome, reflex sympathetic disorder, complex regional pain syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, tourette’s syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, lupus, connective tissue disorder, Wegener’s granulomatosis, polyarteritis nodos (PAN) Kawasaki and others.
