INJURY COMPENSATION PROGRAMS

  • National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)

    The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system for resolving vaccine injury petitions. The VICP provides compensation for people injured by certain vaccines.

    Any individual, of any age, who received a covered vaccine and believe they were injured as a result, can file a petition. Parents, legal guardians and legal representatives can file on behalf of children, disabled adults, and individuals who are deceased.

    How to submit a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims

    Your petition must be filed with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

    Submit your petition, one original and two copies, including cover sheet, medical records, and other documentation plus the appropriate filing fee to:

    Clerk

    U.S. Court of Federal Claims

    717 Madison Place NW

    Washington, DC 20439

    If you are unable to pay the filing fee, call 202-357-6400.

    After you submit your petition to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, you can login in to this system and submit a copy of the petition to HHS.

These are generally all of the medical records from one year before the administration or use of the covered countermeasure to the present time. The records also need to be sent to the CICP by U.S. Postal Service mail or private courier service.

    The CICP is not authorized to provide reimbursement for attorneys’ fees. You may elect to use an attorney; however, you are responsible for any costs incurred from using one.
