The Secretary has delegated his responsibility under the Program to HRSA.

Compensation may also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was caused by one of the listed vaccines. Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa–12(b)(2), requires that the Secretary publish in the Federal Register a notice of each petition filed. Set forth below is a list of petitions received by HRSA on April 1, 2006, through June 30, 2006. Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ‘‘shall afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, written information’’ relating to the following: 1. The existence of evidence ‘‘that there is not a preponderance of the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death described in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the petition is due to factors unrelated to the administration of the vaccine described in the petition,’’ and 2.
