U.S. Senators To Reform Vaccine Compensation Law

Posted January 10, 2003

— It looks like pressure from parents with autistic children is paying off on Capitol Hill.

On Friday, a group of senators announced they have reached an agreement to repeal the section and reform the vaccine compensation law.
