Vaccine insurance law entered into force

On May 1, a novel vaccine insurance law came into force in Estonia. Under the new law, a patient or their relatives can apply for compensation for personal injury caused by severe vaccination-related complications. LEXTAL’s attorneys-at-law Olavi-Jüri Luik and Rauno Kinkar played a key role in drafting the vaccine insurance law (medicines act).

Below is an intro to why the new insurance model is necessary and also how to apply for compensation in case of side effects.

Harm caused by the vaccine? Who will compensate?

The safety of COVID-19 vaccines is very high – serious injuries are rare. For example, as of the morning of 22 November, more than 1.6 million doses of vaccine had been administered in Estonia, of which only 0.37% of doses (5950 notifications) were reported to the State Agency of Medicines regarding all possible side effects and vaccine ineffectiveness. There are even fewer reports – 237 – describing at least one serious suspected adverse reaction with a temporal relationship.
