BRADFORD, Pa. - The U.S. Claims Court has awarded a Bradford family $4.5 million after their 3 1⁄2-year- old son suffered chronic seizures from routine DPT vaccinations.

The award is reported to be the largest ever given under a trust fund set up by Congress in October 1989 to compensate children crippled by inoculations.

David and Collen (sic) Nuzzo of 173 Williams Street, will receive the award from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The money is for the care and rehabilitation of Andrew Nuzzo.

The claim is based on damage received by Andrew in 1986 when he was given two DPT injections as part of routine immunization to protect him against diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus.

The immunization caused Andrew to develop chronic seizures and to require around-the-clock care.
