Vaccine Court Settlements Mostly for Flu Vaccines Damage
Something Big Pharma and vaccine apologists probably don’t want the public knowing is what has been divulged in a report from the U.S. Department of Justice dated December 5, 2013 available here: Adjudicated Settlements Reporting Period 8/16/13 – 11/15/13 made by what’s known as the U.S. “Vaccine Court.”
The Settlement Report format lists three columns: Vaccine(s), Alleged Injury(ies), and Petition Filing to Settlement Filing, meaning: apparently how long those who were harmed (vaccinees) by vaccines waited to get a settlement after their petition for damages was filed.
During that three-month period, a total of 139 claims were settled, with 70 claims being compensated for damages. However, in slide 3 of the PowerPoint (PP) presentation made by Vincent J. Matanoski, JD, Deputy Director, Torte Branch, it states 75 cases were compensated. Furthermore, in the enumerated listing of settled/compensated claims, PP slides 16 thru 24, only 70 are listed with no monetary values.
Question: Where are, or why aren’t, all 75 settled claims listed as per PP3, Statistics II, A.?
Apparently, 69 claims were dismissed [139 minus 70 enumerated]. But, there’s the confusing issue of slide 3 indicating that A. Compensated: 75 (i. Cases conceded by HHS: 1; ii. Cases not conceded by HHS: 74) and B. Not Compensated/Dismissed: 64. There’s that illusive number 5 not being accounted for. Could someone at the Department of Justice please explain what’s going on with 5 cases that seem to have disappeared in statistics gathering?
Some amazing facts can be found within the PowerPoint presentation:
- Most compensated cases were for flu vaccine damages, especially due to the paralyzing Guillain-Barre syndrome. So, what’s going on with flu vaccines?
- Forty-three (43) settled claims involved flu vaccines, which represents 61.4% of the 70 settled claims in PP slides 16 thru 24. Most claims indicated Guillain-Barre syndrome.
- There were three (3) HPV vaccine claims settled (PP 18,19, and 24)
- There was one (1) death attributed to the flu vaccine (PP 21)
- There was one (1) death attributed to what may have been a well-baby visit with multi-valent vaccines given, i.e., HepB, IPV, DTaP, PCV, Hib (PP 23)
- Another death attributed to what may have been a well-baby visit with multi-valent vaccines given, i.e., DTaP, IPV, HepB, Hib, PCV, RV (PP 19)
- There were two (2) shoulder injuries (PP 16 and 20)
- There even was a case of permanent legal blindness attributed to a flu vaccine (PP 20)
During that three-month reporting period, the total Petitions filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, i.e., “Vaccine Court,” were 202 – 31 on behalf of minors and 171 for adults who presented claims for harms from vaccines/vaccinations.
There are several levels of appeal within the vaccine compensation act set up by Congress in 1986. Every claim starts with the Office of Special Masters, aka Vaccine Court. Then the appeal process can proceed to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and finally, the U.S. Supreme Court. Most claims, however, are ‘shot down’ at the Office of Special Masters.
According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, from Fiscal Year (FY) 1989 thru FY 2014 there have been a total of 3,484 Compensable claims and 9,713 Dismissed claims—rejected—‘shot down’, left to suffer without any recourse plus apparent nullification of torte law that would apply to other businesses product liability damages, but not Big Pharma’s vaccines! It looks like an almost 3-to-1 ratio: dismissed claims to compensated damages.
Here are the Dec. 5, 2013 report payout figures per HRSA:
Back on October 18, 2013, this writer posted an article about the Vaccine Courts total damages paid in the September 3, 2013 data:
The U.S. Court of Federal Claims (aka the vaccine court) paid out $2,569,336,538.59 for compensable claims and $104,202,681.85 for attorneys’ fees representing those claims. The court paid another round of attorneys’ fees for dismissed claims totaling $56,375,431.34, plus $15,190,454.29 for interim attorneys’ fees. 
If I calculated rounding-off math correctly, the Vaccine Court paid almost $64 million [$63,796,836.] as compensation for 70 claims in just three months. Add to that the attorneys’ fees, etc. and one can readily see that there’s a huge problem with vaccines that’s being kept from the unassuming and vaccine-ignorant public.
Health Impact News Daily produced an exceptional overview regarding the December 5th Vaccine Court report, which readers ought to study (available here) to understand the impact of what’s actually going on with vaccines that healthcare consumers really don’t know, but should. That is important information that ought to make the TV evening news casts, but doesn’t. Why? Is that some top national security threat?
Constantly, consumers are warned about being informed; being “proactive” about preventing identity theft; and practicing preventive health measures. However, the public deliberately is kept in the dark about the global problems with vaccines and vaccinations, which should be illegal. Nothing attests to the fact that vaccines harm, possibly due to neurotoxins and other toxic chemicals, than the CDC’s VAERS reports and damage filings with the Vaccine Court. Perhaps those who are damaged are considered “collateral damage for the greater good of society.” At least that’s what I’ve heard that vaccine damages are to be considered.
Nevertheless, the public is bombarded with specious advertising hype about vaccines eliminating contagious infectious diseases when, in actuality, those ‘vaccine diseases’ had declined to negligible statistics long before vaccines came on the market. Please check out the following charts.
USA Annual Influenza (1933-1965) Flu Vaccination Campaigns Began in late 1980s
Measles in England & Wales (1850-1965) – Measles Vaccination Began 1965
New Zealand Tuberculosis (1880-1960) BCG Vaccination Introduce 1953
USA Scarlet Fever (1910-1958) No Vaccine for Scarlet Fever in USA
Now, let’s look at some other interesting charts about who’s contracting

Readers may want to check out a 2013 book, Dissolving Illusions, Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History, which discusses the history of vaccines and how diseases declined before modern vaccines ever came on the market.
Furthermore, currently there’s a campaign to get healthcare professionals and workers vaccinated with flu vaccines: “Increasing Flu Vaccination of Healthcare Personnel.” What I’m hearing is that if hospitals don’t meet the HHS/CDC/FDA threshold for worker population flu vaccinations, they won’t receive government funding! So it’s a case of “follow the money.”
However, one has to wonder why healthcare professionals have to be goaded, or threatened with being fired from employment, in order to comply with getting flu vaccinations. One would think nurses, above all people, would be the first in line, seeing and knowing what they do professionally. But then, that’s probably the reason: Maybe they know the real facts about vaccines because they see and treat the damages that vaccines have caused.
This is a listing of the 2013-14 Influenza Seasonal Vaccines. Study it carefully, especially if you are concerned about ethylmercury (49.6% in Thimerosal) in vaccines. This is the CDC’s spin about Thimerosal and how it is ‘safe’. Ethylmercury still is mercury, no matter how you define it with resulting neurotoxic implications. The spin control masters are at their best when it comes to mercury in vaccines, in this writer’s humble opinion.
Public Health Agency of Canada has an interesting chart of characteristics for 8 seasonal flu vaccines for 2013-14, which gives more information that can help readers understand certain things about flu vaccines:
- All flu vaccines, except one, contain one or more antibiotics.
- All but one vaccine contain formaldehyde.
- All 8 contain egg proteins; 3 contain Polysorbate 80; 3 contain Triton X-100; 3 contain a form of bromide; and 1 contains MSG.
- One is a live attenuated flu vaccine, which can shed the virus to others. See this for CDC confirmation of that fact.
Data indicate that both children and adults vaccinated with nasal spray can shed vaccine viruses after vaccination, although in lower amounts than occur typically with shedding of wild-type influenza viruses.
In my opinion, as a retired healthcare professional, there is dramatic negligence on the CDC’s part. Why do I say that? There is total lack of “self-help” information plus inducements on how to improve and “beef up” the human immune system. Washing hands often is a terrific idea, but there is more to not contracting any communicable disease than just getting vaccinated. How come so many who get the flu vaccine, also contract the flu?
It seems that those who should know better, and ought to promote such preventive information, do not. Nothing is said by CDC about a correct and nutritious diet; the reduction in sugars, unhealthful fats, and junk foods; the increase in fresh fruits and fresh vegetables, especially no GMO-grown food; daily supplementation with Vitamin D and other nutritional supplements such as Vitamin C, Zinc, and Echinacea. Why not encourage taking Elderberry extract, if one gets the flu. Plus, there are homeopathics that knock out the flu in a day or two! In the Notes below I’ve placed several URL addresses to acquaint readers with effective OTC products to deal with influenza-like illnesses (ILIs) from a homeopathic approach. Why aren’t they mentioned in the CDC’s directives? The problem is that most of those natural ingredients cannot be patented, so Big Pharma can’t make a financial killing from producing and selling them. Again, it’s probably a question of following the money.
So, here’s the really BIG question, as I see it: If there are so many vaccinees claiming damage from vaccines—especially the flu vaccines, why isn’t Congress, who gave Big Pharma the “get out of jail free” card and exonerated vaccine makers from torte damages, not revisiting the problems with vaccines, since Congress has oversight. Or, is it a matter of too many Big Pharma lobbyists on Capitol Hill and following the money?
