TALKING POINT #2
What is a Vaccine Injury?
It’s the same thing as an adverse reaction. A vaccine adverse event (VAE), sometimes referred to as a vaccine injury, is an adverse event caused by vaccination. The World Health Organization (WHO) knows VAEs as Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI). AEFIs can be related to the vaccine itself (product or quality defect-related reactions), to the vaccination process (error or stress-related reactions), or can occur independently from vaccination (coincidental) and are classified as:
● Vaccine product-related reaction
● Vaccine quality defect-related reaction
● Immunization error-related reaction
● Immunization anxiety-related reaction
● Coincidental event
While vaccine injuries are considered relatively rare overall, they are more common than most people realize. Each year, hundreds of individuals file claims with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), and these claimants represent only a small fraction of the vaccine recipients who experience pain and other symptoms. From allergic reactions to spinal cord damage, vaccines have the potential to cause a variety of injuries, illnesses, and other potentially dangerous medical conditions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaccine_adverse_event
