Discover how global vaccine injury compensation works, as well as the schemes and shady governmental facilities involved.
Vaccine Injury Compensation: How Countries Decide Who Is Compensated and Why looks at the mysterious and often unknown world of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), the only recourse for seeking compensation for those who have been injured by a vaccine. Author Wayne Rohde compares the NVICP against other countries' programs, the pluses and minuses of each program, and the differences between traditional vaccines and COVID-19-related vaccines. Rohde will also explore the very complex, dark, and non-transparent COVAX Facility, the organization established by the World Health Organization; GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance; and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to obtain and distribute vaccines to low-income nations and, at the same time, provide an injury compensation program for those countries.
The book will explore several countries and analyze their vaccine injury compensation programs (or schemes) for traditional vaccines such as measles or influenza, and compensation programs for the COVID-19 vaccine. The United States, Canada, United Kingdom, European Union, South Africa, Southeast Asia, Japan, some South American countries, Russia, and China will all be covered. The COVID-19 vaccine injury schemes bring up some very interesting and controversial topics. First, many countries were late to create a compensation program. Second, the delay in processing and compensating injured persons is now gathering more spotlight by alternative media. And third, for the first time, a non-governmental entity was created to provide not only distribution of the vaccine but also compensation of the vaccine, a.k.a. the COVAX Facility. Who controls the COVAX Facility, is there any legal options for the injured, and why are countries forced to relinquish sovereignty in order to obtain the vaccine?
