Vaccinations against Coronavirus (COVID-19) have recently been added to the list of vaccinations for which people may claim a Vaccine Damage Payment.
The Vaccine Damage Payment scheme has already approved and paid some applications in respect of vaccinations against COVID-19 where the individual has been able to establish that receiving the vaccine caused them to suffer severe disablement.
What is a Vaccine Damage Payment?
A Vaccine Damage Payment is a one-off tax-free payment of £120,000 if you are severely disabled (at least 60% disabled) as a result of vaccination against certain diseases. This could be a mental or physical disablement and will be based on medical evidence from the doctors or hospitals involved in your treatment.
