The debate over whether to vaccinate children is one that has raged on for years. Many of us received vaccines in our youth with no apparent ill effects. There is no doubt that vaccines have saved many precious lives. Still, vaccines are drugs, and the potential exists for a vaccine to cause illness, injury or even death

Failing to immunize a child creates a dangerous foothold for deadly diseases. Therefore, the risk of the vaccine is a safer alternative than putting a child at risk for contracting the very disease the vaccine is designed to prevent.

Most children have no reaction to vaccinations. Unfortunately, some do.

The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a government program supported by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice, encourages childhood vaccination via an efficient system for compensating victims in those rare instances where vaccination causes injury. The program has been successful in assisting vaccine victims and has virtually halted time-consuming and costly litigation against drug manufacturers and medical professionals who administer vaccines. The Yost Legal Group enthusiastically supports VICP and recommends vaccinations be administered to children to ensure their overall well-being.

If your child is the victim of a vaccination reaction, your first goal is to seek immediate medical attention. When the crisis has passed, your next goal is to contact the experienced vaccination injury attorneys at The Yost Legal Group to determine if your child can recover compensation for their injuries through the VICP.
