The author reflects on the importance of constituting a no-fault compensation program for vaccination injuries in Canada. He contends the need for the program's development to ensure people's health and the community. He regards that providing people with compensation if they are harmed will gain the confidence of the public in vaccination. He further calls the necessity for the program to be adopted before a crises will arise that may lose public trust.
