Our New York City vaccine injury attorneys at Douglas & London are actively involved in protecting the rights of individuals injured by vaccines. In 1986, the U.S. Congress passed the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which helps compensate individuals injured by routine vaccinations, without requiring the individual prove fault or negligence on the part of the vaccine manufacturer. Among the vaccines covered by the program are:
- Gardasil/human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Hepatitis A (HAV)
- Hepatitis B (HBV)
- Diptheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP, DTaP, DT, Td or TT)
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
- Measles, mumbs, rubella (MMR, MR, M, R)
- Meningococcal (MCV4, MPSV4)
