The courts have ordered the regional government in Valencia to make the compensation payment after the child suffered 33% hearing loss.

A six year old child who lost 33% of his hearing after being vaccinated has been given compensation of 35,000 € in Valencia.

It happened after the child was administered the triple MMR vaccine in November 2002, and a year later the boy’s mother made a claim asking for compensation. There was no initial reply and she made a second request in September 2004, and now the courts have ordered the Regional Generalitat Government to make the compensation payment.

Meanwhile also in Valencia the family of a man who died after he caught legionnaires disease when sharing a hospital room in the city with a sufferer, has been given compensation of 12,000 €. The claim had been made by the victim’s daughter.
