The Public Health Agency of Canada has launched a Vaccine Injury Support Program (VISP) for serious and permanent injuries resulting from a Health Canada authorized vaccine.
Federal Officials launched the program on Tuesday, saying it’s designed to give those injured from a vaccine “fair and timely” access to financial support.
The program is also available to dependents of Canadians who have died after being vaccinated.
