Vaccine Injury Attorney for Diphtheria Victims

Injuries Resulting from DTP, DTaP, or Td

Diphtheria is an infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract that has been largely eliminated in developed nations through widespread vaccinations. Diphtheria is spread from person to person through external secretions that result from coughing or sneezing, and it can cause breathing problems, paralysis, heart failure, and even death.

Vaccination against diphtheria has been routinely given to U.S. children since the 1940s. The DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis) vaccine that was once the medical standard has now been replaced by DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis). DTaP is generally regarded to be just as effective as DTP but has fewer side effects and safety risks. DTaP is a variant of the vaccination that is suitable for adolescents or adults. Since a vaccine’s effectiveness decreases over time, Td (tetanus and diphtheria) boosters are recommended every ten years throughout adulthood.

Our vaccine injury attorneys can provide affordable legal advocacy for individuals who have suffered from severe vaccine injuries. Let us represent you in court, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
