Proposed Project: The Smallpox Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (OMB 
No. 0915-0282)--Extension

    The Smallpox Emergency Personnel Protection Act (SEPPA) authorized 
the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish the Smallpox 
Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which provides benefits and/or 
compensation to certain persons harmed as a direct result of receiving 
smallpox covered countermeasures, including the smallpox vaccine, or as 
a direct result of contracting vaccinia through certain accidental 
exposures.
    The benefits available under the Program include compensation for 
unreimbursed medical care and lost employment income, and survivor 
death benefits. To be considered for Program benefits, requesters 
(i.e., smallpox vaccine recipients, vaccinia contacts, survivors, or 
the representatives of the estates of deceased smallpox vaccine 
recipients or vaccinia contacts), or persons filing on their behalf as 
their representatives, must file a Request Form and the documentation 
required to show that they are eligible for Program benefits. This 
documentation will vary somewhat depending on whether the requester is 
filing as a smallpox vaccine recipient, a vaccinia contact, a survivor, 
or a representative of an estate.
    All requesters must submit medical records sufficient to 
demonstrate that a covered injury was sustained by a smallpox vaccine 
recipient or a vaccinia contact.
