Could you please let me know how many payments have been made in England in regard to compensation for deaths and injuries caused by any of the covid vaccines.
All data as of 9 October 2023. All data relates to claims received by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) and those transferred from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) on 1 November 2021. All figures provided relate to COVID-19 vaccines.
