    In researching one of the terms about Jessie's illness, there was a link to a National program where the US give $$$ to families who have been injured by a vaccine. I probaby didn't phrase this correctly, but I think the meaning is there.

    Autism, it seems, is still being hotly debated in this court.

    I saw the info on Wikipedia, and this is a quote from them, "The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created to provide a federal no-fault system for compensating vaccine-related injuries or death."

    For anyone with questions, I think further search could be valuable. I certainly NEVER saw anything about this when giving the kids their shots. It has been around since 1988.

    AND if you loose in "Vaccine Court: you can still file a civil suit, or so Wikipedia claims.

    Hope this is interesting/helpful to others.
