RE: Flue Shot
VIII. Compensation Fund
In addition to conferring immunity to manufacturers, distributors,
and administrators of the Covered Countermeasures, the Act provides
benefits to certain individuals who sustain a covered injury as the
direct result of the administration of the Covered Countermeasure. The
Countermeasure Injury Compensation Program (CICP) within the Health
Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) administers the Act's
compensation program. Information about the CICP is available at 1-888-
275-4772 or http://www.hrsa.gov/countermeasurescomp/default.htm.
Section VIII, strike the first sentence and insert: ``The
Declaration for the Use of the Public Readiness and Emergency
Preparedness Act for H5N1 was published on January 26, 2007; amended on
November 30, 2007 to add
H7 and H9 vaccines; amended on October 17, 2008 to add H2 and H6
vaccines; amended on June 15, 2009 to add 2009 H1N1 vaccines and
republished in its entirety.''
How to File and Deadline for Filing
Individuals have one (1) year from the date the vaccine or other covered countermeasure was administered to request compensation benefits.
Individuals who would like to file a CICP Request for Benefits may send a letter documenting their intent to file to:
Health Resources and Services Administration
Countermeasures Injury Compensation Request for Benefits
5600 Fishers Lane, Room 11C-26
Rockville, MD 20857
The letter of intent to file should include:
the name, current address, and phone number of the requestor of benefits;
the covered countermeasure received, the date it was received, the circumstances under which the covered countermeasure was received (e.g., clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health), and the name of the countermeasure recipient if the requestor is filing a death claim.
Although it is not required, requestors may engage the services of an attorney or other representative to render services in connection with the request for benefits. However, the payment of fees and/or costs by CICP of an attorney or other representative is not permitted.
