Reporting Adverse Reactions
The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) requires health care providers to report:

  • Any event listed by the manufacturer as a contraindication to further doses of the vaccine.
  • Any event in the Reportable Events Table that occurs within the specified time period after vaccination.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out over 1.2 billion dollars in damages to families of vaccine-injured or vaccine deaths since 1986.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
VAERS collects and analyzes information from reports of adverse events following immunization and that may possibly be related to the vaccines administered.
This 12-year old federal database receives approximately 1000 reports a month of adverse events including paralysis, brain damage, shock, encephalopathy, and death.
