22 April 2022

Have you suffered a moderate to significant impact following an adverse reaction to a Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved Covid 19 vaccine.  If you have you may be entitled to be reimbursed or compensated by the Australian Government without the need for legal proceedings.

 

The scheme will cover costs of injuries $1,000 and above due to administration of a TGA approved vaccine or due to an adverse event that is considered to be caused by a Covid 19 vaccination.  The recognized side effects to the Covid 19 vaccines include thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome associated with AstraZeneca vaccine and myocarditis and pericarditis associated with the Pfizer vaccine.

 

Claimants may need to have been admitted to Hospital but this requirement  may be waived if outpatient treatment is received and the patient was not admitted to hospital when they otherwise would have been because of the nature of their clinical condition or the recipient was in a rural or remote area making it difficult to access a hospital.

 

Claims relating to death do not required evidence of hospitalisation.

 

Claimants need to provide evidence of:

 

.  specified out of pocket expenses

.  lost earnings

.  paid and gratuitous care

.  loss of capacity to provide domestic services, and

.  pain and suffering.

 

The Scheme does not cover certain harms including contracting Covid 19, psychological and psychiatric conditions, secondary injuries (such as injury when fainting, or a haematoma at the injection site that becomes infected), headaches, fatigue and certain other conditions.
