Why doesnt insurance cover vaccine damages?

Private insurance companies, have totally abandoned coverage for damage to life and property due to:
*Acts of God
*Nuclear war and nuclear power plant accidents
*Vaccination


So is what I read wrong? Whats you opinion, does it worry you

  • For the same reason that the doctors and government continue to push vaccines in the first place... If anyone actually admits there is a possibility of injury from vaccines to many people with money - loose money... Gotta love greed!

  • It should only worry people who choose to vaccinate. My oldest contracted the virus we were vaccinating against when she was 2- no more vaccines for any of my kids, thanks... It is a choice that people make, and one not to be taken lightly. If through your own free will you encounter a life altering reaction, there is no one to blame but you.

  • kerp, it is a paralyzed oculomotor nerve in the right eye.
    there is evidence that the vaccines may cause mini strokes...so wherever the stroke "lands" in the brain will determine the injury...so some injuries may not be evident.
    there are a few theories as to why vaccine injuries occur
    my sil was hospitalized for 3 days after a flu shot at the age of 21, because she had an anaphylactic attack. she also passed out after receiving a meningitis vaccine when she was in hs, and so did my bil.
    vaccine injuries occur.
    vaccine injuries are real.
    i am glad that you have not experienced them first hand.

  • There is a reason for everything an insurance company does. I work for one. And it all boils down to money. The single and ONLY reason is because of the vaccination compensation trust fund thing already in place to compensate for vaccine related damages or death claims. Insurance companies know you will be compensated so they will not compensate you again. That is all. It's a very simple explanation. The same as if you fall and go to the ER. Your likely to get contacted by your insurance company for details because if you were at someone else's home or business they will want that persons insurance to compensate. Anything to save a buck.

  • Maybe because you have the choice not to vaccinate,or to stagger them. They're afraid of the fallout from people blaming certain types of quick onset autism on them(with good reason IMO)

  • Probably because until the science community admits that vaccinations cause harm, insurance companies don't have a reason to cover it. Also, if they cover all of the therapies, treatments, and other stuff people would want to be covered, they'd have to pay for it by sending everyone's rates through the roofs, then nobody would be able to afford it, and then everyone would hate insurance companies even more, and they could never win.
    So, would you want more coverage and insanely high rates to pay for it all, or more limited coverage but be able to afford it for what they do cover?
