Covid-19 Injury Compensation Arrangements

A paper analysing the injury compensation arrangements that are needed to support adequate take-up of new vaccines has been written by Prof Chris Hodges, to assist discussions between European governments and industry who are negotiating supply arrangements. This summarises the well-established precedents on special vaccine compensation schemes, and suggests relevant updates in their design. The paper draws on detailed research by Dr Sonia Macleod and Prof Hodges, including their book Redress Schemes for Personal Injuries (Hart, 2017).
