Compensation for Vaccine Damage in the United Kingdom

Abstract : In this article, the author explains the principle of compensation in the event of damages resulting from a vaccine. It specifies that a law (Vaccine Damage Payments Act 1979) establishes the list of diseases resulting from vaccines which can lead to compensation. The author recalls that a causal link must be proven between vaccination and the disease development. In addition, the author explains the possibility of using an alternative route in order to obtain a compensation for the injury. Indeed, it is possible to turn against the manufacturer of the vaccine by advocating the defect of the product.
