The BNA reports here:
Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, No. 09-152. Does Section 22(b)(1) of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which states that "[n]o vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine ... if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings," preempt all vaccine design defect claims, whether based on strict liability or negligence?
