Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

Since roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine began, how many people have made a claim to ACC for injury or harm relating to side-effects from the vaccine?

How many of these claimants have received, or will be receiving, compensation?

What have been the most severe injuries or harm among all claimants (regarding side-effects from the vaccine)?

In the 2014/2015 year, ACC paid $742,370 for claims relating to vaccine injury or harm. This included $692,176 for compensation. In respect of the highest individual payout for compensation, what was the injury or harm for which payment was made, and how much was paid to that individual?

In the 2017/2018 year, ACC paid $320,819 for claims relating to vaccine injury or harm. In respect of the highest individual payout for compensation, what was the injury or harm for which payment was made?

In the 2006/07 year, ACC paid $238,286 for claims relating to vaccine injury or harm. In respect of the highest individual payout for compensation, what was the injury or harm for which payment was made?

Yours faithfully,
