Petition Reform the Vaccine Damage Payment with payments based on the scale of disability

To be eligible for vaccine injury compensation under the Vaccine Damage Payments Act 1979 a person has to be 60% disabled. This threshold is too high and leaves many victims without compensation. The Government must reform this scheme and adopt a new model based on a scale of damage and harm.

More details

Although the Covid-19 vaccine rollout was a historic success for our nation, it is now clear that a very small percentage of our population have suffered an adverse reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine.

As such, it would only be right that the compensation model allows those disabled as a result of a vaccine a pathway for proportionate, financial support. However, the VDPA 1979's threshold is too high and leaves many without compensation. A compensation scheme with payments based on an individual's disability must now be adopted.
