The Clinical Takeaway: The National Vaccine Indemnity Scheme

Description

In this episode:

 
– Development of an education program around the Covid vaccine compensation scheme which the Commonwealth Government announced in July
– The scheme has opened to patients wishing to register and is an issue relevant to the day-to-day practice of GPs
– GPs are likely to field enquiries from patients about the scheme or have consultations with the small percentage of patients who suffer injury from the vaccine
– The scheme enables patients who have suffered injury from an adverse reaction to a Covid vaccine to claim compensation for their losses on a “no-fault” basis
