The Nepal government have passed a bill making vaccine providers liable for vaccine injuries or death. In the event of a death or injury, they will have to compensate the victim or his family.

Administering out of date or faulty products or giving a vaccine without permission will also make them liable to pay compensation.  If a centre is found to be vaccinating without consent, their centre will also be closed down.

VAN UK’s Comment: Hopefully other countries will take Nepal’s example and put people before profit.
