More than 10,000 Australians are planning to seek taxpayer money for coronavirus vaccine injuries under the federal government’s no-fault indemnity scheme, according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald and WAToday.

Next month, claims above $5000 will be lodged through an online portal for those who suffered injury and a loss of income due to their vaccine.

The compensation will be paid by the federal government.

Clare Eves, Head of Medical Negligence at Shine Lawyers, says it will cover medical costs and lost wages.

“At the moment they’re looking at if somebody has been hospitalised, there’s a clear link between their medical condition and the vaccine,” she told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast.

“And they do have expenses, or loss of, between $5,000 and $20,000 then they are being eligible to join.”

More than 37 million doses have been administered during the roll out, with the vast majority experiencing no adverse reactions.
