Fri, 24 Aug 2001 15:47:14 -0700 PRESS RELEASE Contacts: Jeff Thompson - 888.709.6674 Jeff Sell - 832.797.8191 For immediate release August 10, 2001, Houston, Texas "VACCINE INJURY ALLIANCE" www.vaccineinjury.org
(HOUSTON, TEXAS-August 10, 2001)
In 1986 Congress established the NVICP to compensate victims, protect vaccine manufacturers and health care personnel administering vaccines from liability resulting from vaccine related injuries and deaths. Even though the enabling legislation that created the NVICP requires the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to "undertake reasonable efforts to inform the public of the availability of the Program", most parents, teachers, physicians, and even many attorneys, are unaware of the existence of this program, let alone the three year (3 year) statute of limitations that may bar claims that are not timely filed. "The Secretary has obviously done very little, if anything to fulfill this directive, so we will," according to Jeff Sell, an attorney working with the William Bailey Law Firm.
The limitation provision buried within the NVICP states:
"a vaccine set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table which is administered after October 1, 1988, if a vaccine-related injury occurred as a result of the administration of such vaccine, no petition may be filed for compensation under the Program for such injury after the expiration of 36 months [48 months with respect to death claims] after the date of the occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of the significant aggravation of such injury..." 42 USC Sec. 300aa-16.
