In a path-breaking move, the World Health Organization has brought in a "no-fault compensation" programme on Covid-19 vaccines.

Explaining the vaccine injury compensation mechanism, the WHO said, the programme will offer eligible individuals in AMC-eligible countries "a fast, fair, robust and transparent process to receive compensation for rare but serious adverse events associated with COVAX-distributed vaccines until 30 June 2022".
