The Costs of Vaccine Damage: The Payout Figures

Vaccines are supposed to be safe according to the U.S. CDC/FDA, so how come the HRSA division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published Statistics Reports [1] for the period ending September 3, 2013 providing data verifying that vaccines cause damage and even kill?

The period covers fiscal years (FY) 1989 to FY 2013. There were 3,387 compensable claims—meaning those claims that received compensation or money, and 9,651 claims that were dismissed, an awful miscarriage of the original intent of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program created by Congress and Public Law 99-660, in this writer’s opinion.

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims (aka the vaccine court) paid out $2,569,336,538.59 for compensable claims and $104,202,681.85 for attorneys’ fees representing those claims. The court paid another round of attorneys’ fees for dismissed claims totaling $56,375,431.34, plus $15,190,454.29 for interim attorneys’ fees. Judging by attorneys’ fees paid out, it looks like attorneys do pretty well, instead of injured claimants, i.e., those the court decides to dismiss.

Here is the nitty-gritty of the reports filed: Injuries, Deaths, Compensated, and Dismissed claims.

Please study the data carefully. You will notice the vaccines causing the most damage were:

DPT 3,284; Influenza (Trivalent) 1,108; MMR 860; Hepatitis B 591; DtaP 353;

OPV (Oral Polio) 280

The vaccine attributed to causing the most deaths was DTP with 696 deaths.

Coincidentally, of the 32 vaccines listed, very few—only 5—had no deaths attributed.

The chart below is copied and pasted from the HRSA website.

Claims Filed and Compensated or Dismissed by Vaccine 1 September 3, 2013
Vaccines Listed in Claims as Reported by Petitioners

1 The number of claims filed by vaccine as reported by petitioners in claims since the VICP began on October 1, 1988, and how many of those have been compensated or dismissed by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (Court). Claims can be compensated by a settlement between parties or a decision by the Court.
2 Claims filed for vaccines which are not covered under the VICP.
3 Insufficient information to make a determination.

However, in the last report at the bottom of the HRSA Statistics Reports website, data list how many doses of various vaccines were administered during calendar years 2006 to 2012. The vaccines that seem to pose the most problems are: Influenza, DTaP, MMR, Tdap, HPV, and Hepatitis B.

The total doses of vaccines given during that time frame were 1,968,399,297 – almost two billion vaccines. However, those vaccine administered figures are not juxtaposed against the VAERS reporting system for adverse events, which needs to be taken into consideration for the “full force and effect” of vaccination campaigns and public relations.

To get the full force and effect of vaccines, one has to access the VAERS; ‘mandatorily’ read some statements of understanding, which include:

  • More than 10 million vaccines per year are given to children less than 1 year old, usually between 2 and 6 months of age. At this age, infants are at greatest risk for certain medical adverse events, including high fevers, seizures, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Some infants will experience these medical events shortly after a vaccination by coincidence.
  • These coincidences make it difficult to know whether a particular adverse event resulted from a medical condition or from a vaccination. Therefore, vaccine providers are encouraged to report all adverse events following vaccination, whether or not they believe the vaccination was the cause.

Readers will notice how adverse events surrounding vaccines always seem to be a “coincidence.” Furthermore, if “infants are at greatest risk for certain medical adverse events” between 2 and 6 months, why not wait until later. Japan has an interesting vaccination program; it’s two tiers: Immunization Law and Voluntary Vaccinations(Source)

In the VAERS reports, after agreeing to understand what is listed, one clicks on the box to access data that appear at https://vaers.hhs.gov/data/data. Four types of files can be accessed for the years 1990 to August 12, 2013. The information is voluminous and would take a computer statistical analysis program to cross reference all the information. However, scrolling through the files one gets the idea that many more vaccine adverse events occur that are not given credibility as ‘valid’ nor juxtaposed against vaccines administered, which would be an accurate risk analysis assessment ratio for informed healthcare consumers to have access to.

HRSA states that VAERS is a passive reporting system, and “‘Underreporting’ is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events.”

That last sentence is a factual statement. Former FDA Commissioner David Kessler estimated in 1993 that less than one percent of doctors reported prescription drug adverse events. [2] Vaccines and vaccinations are pharmaceutical drugs!

And lastly, the current rate of autism (ASD) in the USA is one in 50, or 2 percent of children aged 6 to 17; whereas in the late 1970s it was one in 10,000.

What are the causative factors? Some are claiming now that it is pollution. Well, chemicals are pollutants. Pharmaceuticals and vaccines are made with toxic chemicals. Nine vaccine actives with their neurotoxins given during one well-baby visit certainly pumps a lot of chemicals into infants.


Reports of autism cases per 1,000 children grew dramatically in 
the U.S. from 1996 to 2007.

Source: Wikipedia

From 1996 to 2007—twelve years—reports of autism cases per 1,000 children increased from less than one to over five! It is now 2013. Can anyone guess? Well, in 2012 the rate was 11.3 per 1,000 per the U.S. CDC. From 2007 to 2012—just six years—it went from slightly over five [5.25?] to 11.3 per 1,000 children.

Now here’s something to consider: In 1940 there were only two vaccinations, DTP and Smallpox. By 1980, it went to nine vaccines/vaccinations. Then by 2012, there were 49 mandated doses of 14 vaccines for children up to age six. [3]
