The COVID pandemic has led to the rapid development of a number of COVID vaccines. In turn this has led to the proliferation of no-fault compensation schemes to provide redress in the event of an adverse event due to a COVID vaccine. Phase I of the No-Fault Compensation (NFC) Project has focussed on categorising all known worldwide COVID NFCS (138 were found).  This project is currently in phase II. This phase focusses on evaluating how these NFCS are actually performing by collecting key performance metrics from a 20+ schemes. Phase I was focussed solely on the NFCS itself. In contrast Phase II is a more complex task, which requires careful consideration not just of the NFCS but also of the wider social context in which they are operating, for example do long-established schemes have a greater level of claiming than newer schemes? Does the option to litigate impact on NFCS update? As we move forward to phase III (in March 2024) we will consider how NFCS impact on society move widely, particularly looking at vaccine hesitancy and scepticism.
