On July 20, 2020. the Department of Health and Human Services proposed changes to the vaccine injury table In essence these changes, if adopted, would remove shoulder injuries incurred from vaccine administration, the actual need stick, from the vaccine injury compensation program.
The rationale is that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was meant to compensate those injured from a vaccine…not a needle. It’s a controversial rule change that would deprive thousands of injured petitioner’s compensation. SIRVA is the most common vaccine injury, this includes rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, shoulder inflammation. This can occur from a flu shot, Tdap, MMR, or even a COVID-19 vaccination.
