A new bill was passed to pay citizens for damages from the experimental COVID-19 vaccine (CCP virus) on Sept. 9.
Although the new law takes effect in December 2021, Swedish people with injuries prior to this will be retrospectively compensated for their trouble.
The Swedish Ministry of Social Affairs confirmed the Elongated Country takes full responsibility for serious adverse reactions from the vaccine approved for emergency use. The nation already compensates for pharmaceutical damages suffered from inoculation.
Center-left Social Democrat Swedish Minister of Social Affairs Lena Hallengren believes enacting this law is in the state’s public interest to complement pharmaceutical insurance.
“The state takes it upon itself to pay the compensation for damage due to approved vaccines against COVID-19, in cases where a vaccine is not covered by pharmaceutical insurance, or if the pharmaceutical insurance money is not enough,” she said in a statement.
The Medical Insurance board, which examines whether damage suffered from a drug is compensable, limited insurance liability for serial injury from the jab back in December 2020. BL understands this unwittingly created a loophole to compensate people injured under these circumstances.
“Serial injuries are those in which several people suffer the same type of injury,” the ministry said in the statement.
Pharmaceutical insurance limitations mean there is weaker protection for possible serial injuries caused by vaccines than for other drugs. The government proposed in its 2022 budget for 10 million Swedish kronor ($1.1 million dollars) to be allocated for the compensation fund.
The United States is less fortunate in this regard. Maglio Christopher and Toale previously told Reuters the Florida law firm represented many people claiming to have injuries from Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines. In these cases plaintiffs are basically “out of luck.”
“Our law firm has concluded that there is nothing our attorneys can do to significantly assist you [if you were injured from the CCP virus vaccine,]” the firm said on its website.
Meanwhile, George Washington University Law School believes CCP virus vaccine plaintiffs have only two rights.
“You have the right to file and you have the right to lose,” Vaccine Injury Litigation Clinic director Renée Gentry said according to the newswire agency.
