The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act, or PREP Act, established liability protections for covered persons (as defined in section 319F-3(i)(2) of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act)). In addition to liability protections, the PREP Act established the CICP to provide compensation to eligible individuals for serious physical injuries or death directly caused by the administration or use of pandemic, epidemic, or security countermeasures identified in declarations issued by the Secretary pursuant to section 319F-3(b) of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 247d-6d).


CICP data includes the number of claims (also referred to as Requests for Benefits) filed and compensated, and denied compensation by covered countermeasure. This data is updated monthly.
