"The Vaccine Court is a huge barrier to justice, and forces the American tax payers to now pay for compensation to those injured or killed by vaccines."

The VAXXED film crew was recently in Tulsa, Oklahoma where they interviewed local physicians Dr. James Meehan and Dr. Andy Revelis about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation program, which was established 30 years ago in 1986. This law, enacted by Congress and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan, gave total legal immunity to the pharmaceutical companies that produce vaccines, and set up a special “Vaccine Court” operated by the government.
Prior to 1986, there were so many lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies for injuries and deaths due to vaccines, that the pharmaceutical lobby told Congress that they would stop manufacturing vaccines unless the government gave them immunity from lawsuits. Their products cannot survive in a free market without government intervention mandating their use, and protecting the manufactures from any responsibilities for faulty products.
Dr. Meehan states:
It was one of the most tragic decisions in the history of medicine.
Dr. Meehan states that the Vaccine Court is a huge barrier to justice, and forces the American tax payers to now pay for compensation to those injured or killed by vaccines.
The no-fault law allowed pharmaceutical companies to go from a few vaccines in the market to over three times as many, with over 200 vaccines currently under development in the pipeline. Without product liability, the emphasis now is on profits, and not product safety or efficacy.
Dr. Revelis adds:
We are now in a situation where manufacturers of Corn Flakes and Diet Coke are held to a higher standard than a medication that is injected into children and into adults throughout the world, and there is no liability to safeguard its effectiveness and its safety.
