COVID Vax Injury Claims Approved, Injured Yet to Receive Compensation

The U.S. government’s Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program has approved claims from 19 people who experienced COVID-19 vaccine-related injuries, ruling that they proved their injuries were caused by the vaccines.

However, none of the injured have received compensation yet, according to The Epoch Times.

The approvals are through Feb 1, and all 19 injured people are eligible for compensation.

However, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration, which runs the program, has not provided any payouts to date.

According to the program’s website, officials are either waiting for documentation to determine how much the injured will be paid or have received enough information but have not yet completed a benefits determination.

Seventeen of the cases involved COVID-19 vaccines causing myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, pericarditis, a related condition, or both.

One of the remaining approvals was for severe allergic shock, and the other was for a type of skin swelling called angioedema.

However, some lawyers representing claimants whose claims have not yet been approved are criticizing the delay in providing compensation.

“Approving claims but not actually compensating injured people is no different than denying claims,” said Renee Gentry, a lawyer who represents some people who have filed claims but have not been approved.

“These people don’t need moral victories. They need their medical bills paid for and their loss of income reimbursed. That can really only happen in the VICP,” Gentry went on to say.

The Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program was created to compensate individuals who suffer serious adverse reactions to countermeasures used to treat or prevent pandemics or epidemics.

The program provides compensation for eligible claims, including medical expenses, lost wages, and death benefits.
