Title: ●National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Revisions to the Vaccine Injury Table 

This proposed rule would revise the Vaccine Injury Table by removing Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration and vasovagal syncope as an injuries and removing the new vaccines category, Category XVII.  Doing so will align the Table with Congressional intent, statutory text, and public policy in favor of compensating those harmed by injuries associated with the vaccine or vaccine components, and particularly children who have suffered such harm.
