Request

Dear NHS

‘1. Can you tell me how many applications have been made to the vdps due to adverse reaactions to the Covid vaccines ?

  1. How many of the claims have had their medical records requested?

  2. How many of the claims have or are being assessed by medical assessors?

  3. How many payments have been made to the claimants?

  4. How many claims have been turn down? Yours faithfully,’

Response

All responses are as of week ending 18th February 2022 and for claims relating to COVID-19 vaccinations.

Question 1

A total of 920 claims relating to COVID-19 vaccinations have been registered to the Vaccine Damage Payments Scheme.

Question 2

Medical records have been requested for 141 COVID-19 vaccination-related claims.

Question 3 and 4

The COVID-19 vaccines are very new and the global effort to establish any potential causal relationship between the vaccines and their potential adverse effects is not straightforward and has taken time. Claims relating to Covid-19 vaccines have not yet been medically assessed, therefore there have been no payments made to date, and no claims have been disallowed.

Question 5

One claim relating to COVID-19 has been disallowed due to falling outside the criteria for the scheme. (Non-medical rejection, vaccination given outside of UK or Isle of Man)
