To the Editor: Kelly and colleagues are to be applauded for their call for a no-fault compensation scheme.1 If only such a scheme had been available in the early 1960s, when my sister (who has approved this letter) developed encephalitis secondary to a vaccinia inoculation. Then she, and our parents, would have been spared decades of struggling with the sequelae of this acquired brain injury in a “fault averse” system. The few who have been seriously harmed should not be forgotten by the millions who have benefited.
