Pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. are withdrawing from the development and production of vaccines for both economic and legal reasons, most notably because of the expense attributable to insuring and defending against liability for infrequent but inevitable injuries that result from nondefective as well as defective vaccines. The authors discuss difficulties that arise with the current system of tort liability and argue that a no-fault compensation program is warranted. They propose a set of criteria for establishing an equitable and efficient program at the federal level. (KIE abstract)
