Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Workers' Compensation Act and the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act. Provides that any injury to or disease or death of an employee arising from the administration of a smallpox vaccine to the employee as part of a voluntary inoculation program in connection with the person's employment or a governmental program or recommendation is deemed to arise out of and in the course of employment for all purposes under this Act. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the new provisions apply to any vaccine administered to prepare for, or as a response to, a threatened or potential bioterrorist incident (rather than a smallpox vaccine only). Provides that the amendatory Act is declarative of existing law and is not a new enactment.

 Fiscal Note (Department of Central Management Services)
 CMS anticipates a significant fiscal impact if a state government employee suffers injury, disease, or death as a result of the administration of a smallpox vaccine. Potential costs could range up to several million dollars, depending on the employee's salary, age, and severity of case. Incidence rates are estimated at 1-52 reactions per million individuals. Approximately 40 state employees are currently eligible for smallpox vaccinations.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Industrial Commission)
 After reviewing SB 632, the Illinois Industrial Commission is unable to project any fiscal impact due to the uncertainty of the number of workers choosing to be inoculated, and the frequency of resultant illnesses that may occur as a result of an inoculation.

 Fiscal Note (S-AM 1) (Dept of Commerce and Community Affairs)
 To the extent that SB 632 (SA #1) affects the revenue of every county, city, town, township, and incorporated village in Illinois, the fiscal impact of the legislation cannot be determined at this time. However, the legislation states that its provisions are declarative of existing law and are not a new enactment.
