Cross posted from not vaccinating.

 

So I was reading the Quebec government sites on vaccines (there is a propaganda piece if I ever saw one - and a badly translated one, to boot) and it said Quebec is the only province that has a vaccine injury claim process.  WTF??  

 

So I did a little digging, and it turns out it is true.  Most of Canada does not have a vaccine injury claim process.

Canadians can sue the vaccine makers, but as the article explains:

 

 

"...there has not been a single successful civil lawsuit for medical injury related to immunization in Canada, she says.

"These are very difficult cases to prove in court," she says. "For most people, the risks of being injured from the vaccine are so rare and so idiosyncratic that judges have deemed that a reasonable person, even if they were told that they may actually get GBS after a flu vaccine, they still would have gone ahead and been immunized against flu. And so these cases are really not winnable."

 

I am going to cross post this in research.  I am somewhat speechless, and both enraged and not surprised at the same time.

But seriously that's terrible. There needs to be something like vicp, in my mind, exactly because these cases are so difficult to win in regular courts. I'm sure our process is flawed, too.

Australia doesn't have one either.

 

Here is a WHO link on countries that do, and what kind of programs exist in those countries:

According to the above link, 19 countries have current vaccine compensation programs:  Germany, France, Austria,  Denmark, Japan,  New Zealand, Sweden,  Switzerland, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  China (Province of Taiwan),Finland,  the United States of America (USA)  and the Canadian Province of Quebec,.

I'm sure your process is flawed mischievous.gif - but at least you have one!
