Not only do vaccine manufacturers have no liability for injury or death their products may cause, but vaccine sales also don't count as revenue!
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund provides funding for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to compensate for vaccine-related injury or death petitions for covered vaccines administered on or after October 1, 1988.
Funded by a $.75 excise tax on vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for routine administration to children, the excise tax is imposed on each dose (i.e., a disease that is prevented) of a vaccine. Trivalent influenza vaccine, for example, is taxed $.75 because it prevents one disease; measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, which prevents three diseases, is taxed $2.25.
The Department of Treasury collects the excise taxes and manages the Fund’s investments and produces Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund Monthly Reports."
