The compensation fund, by the way, has a political aspect. It’s purpose is to increase vaccination rates, to compensate people who MAY have been injured by a vaccine in furtherance of that purpose, and to avoid costly litigation. This program is justifed in awarding compensation even when the causality is only speculative.

I don’t have any problem with the compensation fund. I think everyone should be covered for catastrophic illness, anyway.
