The 1986 law that prevented Americans from suing Pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injury and death, and established the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has been a failure. It is time to repeal this legislation.
This law has allowed vaccine interest to abuse the public trust by pushing less safe and less effective vaccines, ignoring soaring reports of serious adverse vaccine reactions, and bloating the vaccine schedule from 24 doses in the 60's 70's and 80's, to a 69 dose schedule today that is not tested in combination for safety.
Further, the US Vaccine Injury Compensation Program created to replace the tort system has been a failure, and has done more to protect vaccine profits than it has to care for victims of vaccine injury. The US Government Accounting Office, Stanford Law, American University Law and The Associated Press/NYT have all issued their findings following in depth investigations into the program and agree that the VICP fails to properly compensate vaccine victims.
Because the public accountability mechanism has ceased to function, vaccine interests, and even doctors in offices, are now making wildly false product safety claims to families, and the public has no way to stop this misinformation campaign by those profiting from the over use and inappropriate use of vaccinations.
This special liability protection given only to vaccine makers has turned the vaccine business from a 750 million dollar per year industry to a reported 27 billion dollar per year industry, while the the health of American children during that same time period has plummeted.
The Canary Party appreciates the leadership that NVIC has offered on vaccine safety issues since the act was passed and join them in their call for repeal. Thirty years is long enough to see that the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has corrupted the vaccine program and harmed the health of America's children. We must repeal this bad law and begin to repair the damage that it has done.
