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 United States Court of Federal Claims and to serve 
a copy of the petition to the Secretary of HHS, 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 42 CFR 100.3. This 
Table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that 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 July 1, 2021, through July 31, 
2021. 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,

[[Page 46000]]

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. ``[S]ustained, 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. ``[S]ustained, 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 United States 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 Injury Compensation 
Programs, Healthcare Systems Bureau, 5600 Fishers Lane, 08N146B, 
Rockville, Maryland 20857. The Court's caption (Petitioner's Name v. 
Secretary of HHS) 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.
