What Is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program?


Product liabilityDr. Tom Frieden urged Americans to get their bivalent Covid vaccine and booster yesterday on Twitter. I kindly let him and his followers know about Wayne Rohde's 15 week class starting this week through IPAK-EDU on the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program.  This is the program that absolves corporations whose products harm Americans during a Pandemic. You can take the course both live and in a recorded version.

 IPAK-EDU on the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program used for emergency authorized biologics.

In this course, students will learn the structure, function and defects of the programs in the US created by Congress to award compensation to adults and children potentially and actually harmed or killed by vaccines. We will review a variety of important topics, review case histories. This course is for parents and lawyers new to US vaccine injury compensation programs.

Read the course description and register here.

Taught by Wayne Rohde, author of Vaccine Court, this class is available through The Online private University, IPAK-EDU.  Many of us KNOW what these programs are - but we don't know the details of their inception and execution.  The knowledge can boost your conversations with, trolls, BOTS, family and friends - just THINK of the Thanksgiving table arguments you can start! You might just get the whole pumpkin pie to yourself. XOX

This vapid woman is bad enough on a regular day, but when I read this I truly threw up in my mouth a bit!

Diary of a Mom

I just got my Covid booster and they didn’t give me a lollipop or a sticker or even ask if I might want something from the toy chest, damn it.
So I got myself these because I was a very good girl. Also, Yay Science!

Sadly there are endless supplies of the brainwashed, big mouthed individuals such as this and thousands of equally clueless followers that will be a never ending source for big pharma. Many times these are the parents who look at autism as a gift and label it as just cute and quirky.


I don’t think Friedan cares too much about the law.
