Chris Seeks Stats On Vaccine Damage Refused Due To Disablement
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many claims under the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme in respect of adverse reactions to Covid-19 vaccines have met the criteria for causation but failed because of a finding that the resulting disablement was less than 60 per cent; and in how many of those cases the disablement was (a) 50 per cent or over, (b) 40 per cent or over and (c) 25 per cent or over.
Maria Caulfield The Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Health and Social Care, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Department for Business and Trade) (Minister for Women)
Out of all claims to the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme (VDPS) relating to COVID-19 vaccines, there have been 157 where causation on the balance of probabilities was accepted but disablement was assessed at less than 60% and the claim was therefore rejected. Of these 157 rejected claims, 41 were 25-39%, 23 were 40-49% and 6 were 50-59%, 86 were under 25% and one was reported as under 60% disablement without a range included in the medical assessment report.
