It's Flu Shot Season, and the CDC has recommended that nearly everyone gets vaccinated. However, the CDC also warns that on rare occasions, flu vaccination can cause serious problems, and that people who think that they have been injured by the flu shot can file a claim for compensation from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. As detailed in the following news segment, vaccinations can result in shoulder injuries “SIRVA”.
We have previously illustrated this risk on our blog post “What is a SIRVA Injury” . SIRVA which stands for Shoulder Injury Resulting From Vaccine Administration, is an injury that we have discussed with many individuals, who often come to us in shock that a Flu Shot has caused them so much pain.
What you should know if you are suffering from shoulder pain as a result from a vaccination, such as the Flu Shot, your experience is real and unfortunately not uncommon. Furthermore, your injury may be eligible for compensation. As many attorneys and physicians are unaware of the Vaccine Injury Program, it is important that you contact an attorney experienced with vaccine injury cases, as we can provide expertise and assist you in determining if you have vaccine injury claim. Contacting us to discuss your injury is without risk, specifically, we will investigate and discuss your possible claim at no cost. We recognize that you may be hesitant to contact us regarding your claim, but in our experience it is worth it to contact us to discuss your claim, a topic we previously blogged about here and here.
