    No fault insurance for medical misadventure in generally is a pretty good idea. However, it would need to be tied to an effective mechanism for detecting, investigating and quantifying the adverse events related to vaccination. One problem with the CSL vaccine was finding out if the event had actually occurred, if it had occurred more commonly than expected – given febrile convulsions are pretty common in kids – and at what rate. Otherwise what you will have is a ‘balance of probability’ kind of argument for compensation based on essentially no data, which would have its own problems for the viability of a vaccination program.
