VAERS - CDC's UNDER REPORTING SYSTEM: U.S. doctors are not required to report vaccine injuries. The CDC instituted a "passive reporting system" of adverse reactions from vaccinations (VAERS), approximately 30,000 annually, and admits that “underreporting” is rampant, estimated to be as low as 1-10%.

CONGRESS / VACCINE COURT / NO LIABILITY FOR VACCINE MAKERS:  Vaccine makers are shielded from all liability by the federal VACCINE COURT, set up by Congress in 1986 to shield vaccine makers from liability, which strikes many as unconstitutional, as it effectively denies the public access to both federal and state courts. Thus far, the Vaccine Court has awarded over $4 billion to victims of vaccines. & . Plus, the Vaccine Court uses U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys to defend HHS and the industry against the public.

UK Catherine Frompovich- Over $3 Billion has been paid to vaccine injury victems. Catherine Frompavich writes about the Vaccine Injury fund and finds some strange anomalies in the Fund’s accounting, indicating the fund collected far more from vaccine recipients than has been paid out.

Vaccine Injury Fund Payouts:
Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund (VCIF) It includes number compensated and number dismissed.  In this article, Catherine talks about the side effects of the Dtap vaccine. She also mentions VAERS as a source of data on vaccine injury.
Dr. Mercola on Vaccine Injury Data: Apparently some data on vaccine injuries has recently been removed from the HHS web site.  The data would have shown a large increase in vaccine awards in 2015.
VAERS It is believed that from 1% to 10% of adverse events are actually reported. The web site tries to discourage users of the data from actually connecting actual adverse injuries reports to true injuries. From the web site: Guide to Interpreting VAERS Case Report Information - When evaluating data from VAERS, it is important to note that for any reported event, no cause-and-effect relationship has been established. Reports of all possible associations between vaccines and adverse events (possible side effects) are filed in VAERS. Therefore, VAERS collects data on any adverse event following vaccination, be it coincidental or truly caused by a vaccine. The report of an adverse event to VAERS is not documentation that a vaccine caused the event.
