Chris Seeks Specific Reasons For VDPS Rejections
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 8 December 2022 to Question 90728 on Coronavirus: Vaccination, for what reason claims under the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme for serious adverse effects arising from myocarditis, pericarditis and myocardial infarction arising from covid-19 vaccines have been rejected on grounds of lack of a causal connection to covid-19 vaccines despite such conditions being referred to in patient information leaflets as having a link to covid-19 vaccines.
Maria Caulfield The Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Health and Social Care, Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for International Trade) (Minister for Women)
Whilst patient information leaflets may show potential causal connections between certain conditions and the COVID-19 vaccines, there may be other causes which are unrelated to the vaccines. Therefore, the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme’s medical assessors consider the causal link between an individual’s health condition and a vaccine, rather than at population level. It is for medical assessors to determine whether on the balance of probability there is a causal link between the vaccine and the condition in the individual’s case.
