Reactions to Meningococcal (Bacterial Meningitis) Vaccines

Protect Yourself with an Experienced Vaccine Injury Lawyer

Meningococcal disease can cause serious blood infections as well as life-threatening illnesses affecting the brain and spinal cord. Meningococcal bacteria is spread through saliva or spit, usually through saliva, and close or ongoing contact. This disease is the leading cause of bacterial meningitis in the U.S. for children 2 to 18 years old. Of the more than 1,000 individuals affected each year, 10-15% will die as a result of this disease. Nearly 20% of the remaining survivors will lose a limb, develop nervous system disorders, become deaf, or suffer from mental retardation, seizures, or strokes.

Anyone can acquire the disease, but it is most common in infants less than a year old and individuals aged 16-21. Certain medical conditions, such as a lack of a spleen can create an increased risk. Recent outbreaks on college campuses nationwide have highlighted the threats to students living in dorms, and therefore have amplified the number of vaccinations being given. In the United States, there are two kinds of meningococcal vaccines available. Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) is given to individuals 55 years of age and younger.

MCV4 Vaccine Side Effects

It's common for people to get side effects after receiving a vaccination. In fact, the CDC states that about 50% of the people who get a meningococcal conjugate vaccine have mild side effects after receiving the vaccination, including a fever or redness and pain where you got the shot. Given the severity of meningococcal disease, the benefits of MCV4 are considered to outweigh the risks. Although many prefer to vaccinate against this disease, rare complications can arise as a result of vaccination.

According to the CDC, Meningococcal vaccine problems can include:

  • Soreness, redness, or swelling where you got the shot
  • Tiredness (fatigue)
  • Headache
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Fever or chills
  • Nausea or diarrhea

    Occasionally, recipients of the meningococcal vaccine can develop Guillain-Barré syndrome, leading to neurological symptoms such as muscle weakness and tingling or numbing. In addition, an improperly administered vaccination may cause serious shoulder injuries.

    Experiencing shoulder pain after a vaccine or surgical procedure?

    If you are experiencing a rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder, and/or brachial neuritis after a surgical procedure or after receiving a vaccination shot, you may be entitled to compensation. Oftentimes, these procedures can cause sharp shoulder pain at the site of the injection. If you've felt permanent swelling or tenderness over the last six (6) months since the procedure, contact our firm immediately.
