Influenza (Flu) Vaccine Injuries

Call (888) 921-3995 for a Free Consultation

Influenza—or "the flu" for short—is an all-too-common infectious disease caused by the influenza virus. It is transmitted through the air by coughs or sneezes and can result in fever, chills, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, and muscle pain in its ever-expanding wake. Nausea and vomiting are frequent symptoms in children.

What Kind of Risks are Associated With the Influenza Vaccine?

Most people have no side effects from the flu shot or flu vaccine, while some may experience soreness at the injection site, fever, vomiting, headache, sore throat, rash, wheezing, and runny nose. undefined

However, the flu vaccine has been reported to cause life-threatening conditions such as:

    This is not an exhaustive list of severe side effects that have been linked to the flu vaccine. Severe reactions to the flu vaccine must be taken seriously. If left untreated, it could lead to permanent injuries, especially to the shoulder, and in extreme cases, death.

    Whether the flu vaccine is administered by injection (the flu shot) or by nasal spray—and whether it includes live or inactive cultures—there remains a very small risk of severe injury.

    Because the flu virus regularly mutates, flu shots have to be regularly modified to keep up with the changing virus. This makes long-term analysis and review more difficult, which is why vaccines are constantly monitored and evaluated.

    Can I Get Nerve Damage from the Flu Vaccine?

    One of the viruses included in the flu vaccine is meant to target Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). This disease manifests itself in an individual by causing their immune system to damage their own nerves. If you develop any symptoms of GBS or nerve damage from the flu vaccine, you may be entitled to compensation.

    Compensation for Flu-Vaccine Related Injuries

    The claims are adjudicated in a "no fault" system. They are not filed against a vaccine manufacturer, hospital, clinic or doctor. The claim must be filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington D.C. All claims must be filed within three (3) years of the adverse reaction. The amount of compensation awarded depends on the extent of the flu vaccine related illness.

    According to the HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration), nearly 47% of flu-vaccine related claims that were filed have been compensated.
