  • In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) to address the DTP vaccine supply shortage. The main goal of the NCVIA was to create the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The program allows for those who have been injured or who have died from vaccines to be compensated, while limiting the liability of the manufacturing companies so that they continue to produce and research vaccines.
