Supplementary notes

* As of January 1, 2020.
"In the majority of cases, vaccines cause no side effects, however they can occur, as with any medication—but most are mild. Very rarely, people experience more serious side effects, like allergic reactions. In those instances, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) allows individuals to file a petition for compensation."
Note: Just because a petition was filed does not mean that compensation was awarded. Over half of the filed petitions during this period were dismissed.
