The Biden administration is beefing up its legal team to handle a rising number of lawsuits over COVID-19 vaccines.

The Justice Department recently posted an online ad on LinkedIn seeking eight trial attorneys to work on cases under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP). This program provides compensation for covered serious injuries or deaths that occur as the result of the administration or use of certain countermeasures regarding government COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The compensation may include unreimbursed medical expenses, lost employment income and the survivor death benefit.
