For almost three decades, the federal government has quietly acknowledged as much: It has paid out more than $3.2 billion to 4,150 individuals and families for injuries caused by everything from flu, diphtheria and tetanus shots to whooping cough vaccines. . . .
In interviews with this newspaper, parents who have experienced the grueling, bureaucratic process to prove their cases say the program needs more scrutiny and attention as California and other states tighten their vaccine laws. . . .
My favorite part of this story was this:
The chances of severe injury are infinitesimal, according to the CDC. More than 2.5 billion doses of vaccines were administered in the U.S. from 2006 to 2014, during which fewer than 3,000 vaccine injury claims were filed. About 1,900 individuals or families were compensated - or one for every 1 million vaccine doses given.
It is completely false to assume that the rate of vaccine injury is only one for 1 million doses of vaccine. Even the government recognizes that only 1 to 10 percent of vaccine injuries are ever reported to VAERS. Fewer still are the claims that ever get to NVICP. NO ONE KNOWS HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE HARMED BY VACCINES---and that's what the people who set all this up intended.
Regardless, it was great to see this out there on Google News.
