If you have become severely disabled as a result of receiving certain vaccines, you may be entitled to a Vaccine Damage Payment of £120,000.
If you’re over 16, you can make a claim yourself.
You can apply on someone else’s behalf if:
- they’re under 16 and you’re their parent or guardian
- they’re not able to manage their own affairs and you act as their legal representative
- they’ve died and you manage their estate
A Vaccine Damage Payment is:
- tax free
- not treated as compensation – meaning you could still seek damages in court
A Vaccine Damage Payment can affect your benefits and entitlements. For more details read the 'If you receive benefits' section on the Claim for a Vaccine Damage Payment page.
