Recent developments suggest that there are emerging concerns about adverse effects, particularly among young people, stemming from COVID-19 vaccines.
Miranda Devine, in a column for The New York Post, highlighted information indicating that the Biden administration might be preparing for a wave of lawsuits related to vaccine injuries.
An ad posted on the USAJobs website and LinkedIn reveals that the Biden DOJ is actively seeking eight new attorneys to defend the federal government in vaccine injury cases. The Torts Branch of the DOJ's Office of Constitutional and Specialized Tort Litigation is expanding its team to address the increasing workload resulting from a rise in cases filed under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.
The job listing posted LinkedIn:
The job listing specifies that the trial attorneys will represent the interests of the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in cases filed under the Vaccine Act. These cases involve claims of injury due to the receipt of vaccines covered by the Act.
Miranda Devine suggests that this hiring spree is likely a proactive measure in anticipation of a surge in COVID vaccine lawsuits. Individuals who were mandated to take the vaccine and experienced serious side effects may seek compensation within a system that is perceived to be challenging for them.
This development follows a lawsuit filed in Louisiana by six vaccine-injured plaintiffs against the federal government, aiming to challenge the legal immunity enjoyed by pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer and Moderna concerning their COVID shots. The lawsuit poses a significant threat to the existing liability shield for Big Pharma.
As the recruitment drive unfolds, it raises questions about potential changes in how the federal government addresses claims of immunization injuries, with some experts suggesting that a lawsuit involving COVID-19 vaccine recipients claiming injuries could bring about long-awaited transformations in this domain.
