America spent $11 TRILLION on COVID-19 but nearly NOTHING on compensating those injured by the vaccines
By Arsenio Toledo // Mar 02, 2023

The United States has spent over $11 trillion on the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but has spent next to nothing compensating those injured by the vaccines.

The amount the U.S. has spent on COVID-19 was calculated by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a non-profit public policy think tank. It has found that the federal government already spent around $11.067 trillion of taxpayer money on the COVID-19 pandemic, from an allowed spending limit of $14.17 trillion.

Of the over $11 trillion the government has already spent, $67.401 billion went to funding COVID-19 vaccine development as well as the distribution and rollout of the vaccines and coverage of COVID-19 vaccinations under Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. The federal government also allotted an additional $18.9 billion that it has yet to spend on further vaccine development and distribution.

Despite the federal government's massive spending for COVID-19 vaccines alone, it has spent next to nothing to provide little to no compensation to the thousands, possibly millions, of Americans who were injured by the COVID-19 vaccines.

In an episode of "The HighWire," host Del Bigtree and his co-host Jefferey Jaxen noted that Americans can turn to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for any kind of vaccine injury. The program can settle lawsuits and provide significant compensation on Americans injured by vaccines.

However, when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines, people only have the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), an obscure tribunal whose payouts are limited to unreimbursed medical expenses and up to $50,000 a year in lost wages. Americans are also not allowed to sue COVID-19 vaccine makers because they are indemnified by the government.

Jaxen added that the CICP's budget for the past few years has been exceptionally minuscule compared to how much the federal government spends on other matters related to COVID-19 – $7.19 million for the 2022 fiscal year and just $15 million for the 2023 fiscal year.

"You have to know, if you gave over 300 million people a product, someone's gonna die – several will probably die," noted Bigtree. "And the fact that you were only set up for [$15 million]? So, what do they even think a life would be worth? It kind of gives you the sense that they never plan on paying anybody anything if that's the kind of money [they set aside]."

Only 19 COVID-19 vaccine injury claims have been approved so far

According to Republican Rep. Mike Collins of Georgia, data obtained from the CICP showed only 19 of the 11,196 claims filed before the program for injuries related to the COVID-19 vaccine had been approved. Most of these claims were for myocarditis, or an inflammation of the heart muscle.

Almost all of these claims, 10,653, are still pending review, and the status of the remaining claims is unknown. Allen Storey, who suffered an acute brain stem stroke just days after getting vaccinated, noted that he and his wife filed a claim for compensation more than two years ago and they have still not heard anything from the government.

"You don't get any answers. Nobody calls back, nobody's sent anything in the mail," said his wife, Beverly. "I don't understand why they can't read it and respond like they said they would."

"The delays and uncertainty within this program have placed extraordinary financial and personal burdens on individuals who must now care for their loved ones without the assistance of this program," noted Collins in a letter to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. "This is unacceptable."
