-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is 
publishing this notice of petitions received under the National Vaccine 
Injury Compensation Program (the Program), as required by Section 
2112(b)(2) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended. While 
the Secretary of Health and Human Services is named as the respondent 
in all proceedings brought by the filing of petitions for compensation 
under the Program, the United States Court of Federal Claims is charged 
by statute with responsibility for considering and acting upon the 
petitions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about requirements for 
filing petitions, and the Program in general, contact the Clerk, United 
States Court of Federal Claims, 717 Madison Place NW., Washington, DC 
20005, (202) 357-6400. For information on HRSA's role in the Program, 
contact the Director, National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, 
5600 Fishers Lane, Room 11C-26, Rockville, MD 20857; (301) 443-6593.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Program provides a system of no-fault 
compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified 
childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 
300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file 
a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of 
the petition on the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who is 
named as the respondent in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated 
this responsibility under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by 
statute to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings 
as appropriate, and make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and 
amount of, compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in 
the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at Section 2114 of the 
PHS Act or as set forth at 42 CFR 100.3, as applicable. This Table 
lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions which may lead 
to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for occurrence 
of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant 
aggravation after vaccine administration. 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 ``[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service 
of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish 
notice of such petition in the Federal Register.'' Set forth below is a 
list of petitions received by HRSA on December 1, 2013, through 
December 31, 2013. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and 
state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or 
attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has 
redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list 
reflects such redaction.
    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 the petition is due to factors unrelated to the 
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
    (a) ``Sustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury 
Table but which was caused by'' one of the vaccines referred to in the 
Table, or
    (b) ``Sustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table 
the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant 
aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in 
the Table but which was caused by a vaccine'' referred to in the Table.
    In accordance with Section 2112(b)(2), all interested persons may 
submit written information relevant to the issues described above in 
the case of the petitions listed below. Any person choosing to do so 
should file an original and three (3) copies of the information with 
the Clerk of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims at the address listed 
above (under the heading ``For Further Information Contact''), with a 
copy to HRSA addressed to Director, Division of Vaccine Injury 
Compensation Program, Healthcare Systems Bureau, 5600 Fishers Lane, 
Room 11C-26, Rockville, MD 20857. The Court's caption (Petitioner's 
Name v. Secretary of Health and Human Services) and the docket number 
assigned to the petition should be used as the caption for the written 
submission. Chapter 35 of title 44, United States Code, related to 
paperwork reduction, does not apply to information required for 
purposes of carrying out the Program.
