Can You Sue If You Get Sick from the COVID Vaccine?

Are pharmaceutical companies or businesses that mandate employee vaccinations liable if someone gets sick from adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine? What if a business does not mandate vaccines and a third party contracts COVID from its employees? What recourse is available? Professor Dorit Reiss, leading vaccine law scholar, explains these and other questions on liability and remedies.
