The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act provides compensation to people for serious injuries or deaths from pandemic, epidemic,
or security countermeasures. The Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) manages this compensation program. Vaccines such as anthrax,
smallpox, and the 2009 novel H1N1 are eligible countermeasures under this program. The filing deadline to request compensation benefits is one year
from the date the vaccine or other covered countermeasure was administered.
