National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Addition of Trivalent Influenza Vaccines to the Vaccine Injury Table
Document Number: 05-7264
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-04-12
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
Through this notice, the Secretary announces that trivalent influenza vaccines are covered vaccines under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which provides a system of no-fault compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by covered childhood vaccines. This notice serves to include trivalent influenza vaccines as covered vaccines under Category XIV (new vaccines) of the Vaccine Injury Table (Table), which lists the vaccines covered under the VICP. This notice ensures that petitioners may file petitions relating to trivalent influenza vaccines with the VICP even before such vaccines are added as a separate and distinct category to the Table through rulemaking.
