National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: List of Petitions
Received
AGENCY: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department
of Health and Human Services (HHS).
ACTION: Notice.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: HRSA is publishing this notice of petitions received under the
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (the Program), as required
by the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. While the Secretary of Health
and Human Services is named as the respondent in all proceedings
brought by the filing of petitions for compensation under the Program,
the United States Court of Federal Claims is charged by statute with
responsibility for considering and acting upon the petitions.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about requirements for
filing petitions, and the Program in general, contact Lisa L. Reyes,
Clerk of Court, United States Court of Federal Claims, 717 Madison
Place NW, Washington, DC 20005, (202) 357-6400. For information on
HRSA's role in the Program, contact the Director, National Vaccine
Injury Compensation Program, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 08N146B,
Rockville, MD 20857; (301) 443-6593, or visit our website at: http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/index.html.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Program provides a system of no-fault
compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified
childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C.
300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file
a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of
the petition on the Secretary of HHS, who is named as the respondent in
each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this responsibility under
the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by statute to appoint
special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and
make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and amount of,
compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities,
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in
the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This
Table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may
lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for
occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of
significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may
also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for
conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in
the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was
caused by one of the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2),
requires that ``[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service
of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish
notice of such petition in the Federal Register.'' Set forth below is a
list of petitions received by HRSA on March 1, 2019, through March 31,
2019. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and state of
vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or attorney
filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has redacted
the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list reflects such
redaction.
    Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ``shall
afford all interested persons an opportunity to
[[Page 17841]]
submit relevant, written information'' relating to the following:
    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance of
the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death
described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
    a. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness,
disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury
Table but which was caused by'' one of the vaccines referred to in the
Table, or
    b. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness,
disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table
the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant
aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in
the Table but which was caused by a vaccine'' referred to in the Table.
In accordance with Section 2112(b)(2), all interested persons may
submit written information relevant to the issues described above in
the case of the petitions listed below. Any person choosing to do so
should file an original and three (3) copies of the information with
the Clerk of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims at the address listed
above (under the heading ``For Further Information Contact''), with a
copy to HRSA addressed to Director, Division of Injury Compensation
Programs, Healthcare Systems Bureau, 5600 Fishers Lane, 08N146B,
Rockville, MD 20857. The Court's caption (Petitioner's Name v.
Secretary of HHS) and the docket number assigned to the petition should
be used as the caption for the written submission. Chapter 35 of title
44, United States Code, related to paperwork reduction, does not apply
to information required for purposes of carrying out the Program.
    Dated: April 22, 2019.
George Sigounas,
Administrator.
