Shoulder injuries from vaccine administration (SIRVA) is a condition that can occur when certain vaccines are injected into the shoulder area. This condition is relatively rare, occurring in about 1 out of every 100,000 vaccinations. However, it can cause significant pain and disability and may require surgical treatment.
SIRVA occurs when the needle is injected into the bursa; hits a nerve; or simply creates inflammation at point of entry. SIRVA can cause the following symptoms:
– Severe pain in the shoulder area
– Limited range of motion in the shoulder
– Tingling or numbness in the arm or hand
– Weakness in the arm or hand
– Swelling of the shoulder
In some cases, SIRVA can lead to chronic pain and disability. If you experience any of these symptoms after receiving a vaccination, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created to help people who have been injured by vaccines. If you have been diagnosed with SIRVA, you may be eligible for compensation from the NVICP. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the process and ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
