Sweden Passes New Law To Compensate Those Injured By COVID Vaccines

Sweden has passed a new law that will compensate those injured by the COVID vaccines. The new law will come into force in December but retroactively grant compensation to anyone injured as a result of the vaccines prior to that date.

Sweden Passes New Law To Compensate Those Injured By COVID Vaccines

The Swedish government has announced a new proposal that would see those who have taken coronavirus vaccines and have been injured as a result will be entitled to compensation.

The Swedish government announced the new proposal on Thursday, with Social Minister Lena Hallengren commenting:

“Serious side effects of vaccines against COVID-19 are uncommon, but as an individual, you should be sure that financial compensation is paid in the event of injury.”

“With this bill, 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,” Hallengren added.

The new law comes after the Swedish Board of Pharmaceutical Insurance made moves in December of last year to limit insurance liability in the case of injuries caused by vaccines during the pandemic.

“Due to the limitation of Pharmaceutical Insurance, there is weaker protection for possible serial damage caused by vaccines against COVID-19 than for other medicines.

The government, therefore, considers that there is a need for the State to supplement Pharmaceutical Insurance in this regard,” the government stated in a press release.

The new law would come into force in December but retroactively grant compensation to anyone injured as a result of the vaccines prior to that date. The government has also proposed to set aside 10 million Swedish kronor (£837,761/$1,159,443) to fund the initiative.

Earlier, Sweden became the second European nation after Portugal to ban travellers from the most vaccinated nation Israel. Sweden also banned the entry of citizens from the United States, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro, and North Macedonia.

Compensation for injuries related to the vaccine is harder to access in other countries — like the United States, where lawyers have told prospective clients they may be unable to claim any compensation.

Lawyer Altom Maglio told news service Reuters in July that his Florida firm had been contacted by around a hundred people but said that despite his firm representing many people with vaccine-related injuries in the past, those looking to get compensation regarding the coronavirus vaccines were out of luck.

Earlier this year, the Canadian federal government opened a vaccine injury compensation programme but stated only those with “a serious and permanent injury” would be eligible for any compensation.

Meanwhile, a 16 year old teenager has been awarded a $225,000 compensation after suffering a heart attack from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine by the Singapore’s Ministry of Health.
