Agency Actions: Final Rule; effective date delay

HHS delayed for 60 days the effective date on the final rule “National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Revision to the Vaccine Injury Table” after taking comments in a public hearing. The final notice effective date is delayed due to the “Regulatory Freeze Pending Review.” The final rule will now be in effect on April 23, 2021.

Analysis/ Additional Details:

There are rare reactions to COVID-19 vaccines or other injuries (e.g. shoulder injury) that might occur at the time the vaccine is administered. Final rule on this $4 billion fund compensation program is complete, while delayed due to regulatory freeze by the Biden Administration.
