You have undoubtedly heard about the flu outbreak across the country and the request by government officials that people receive the flu vaccine. With respect to the flu vaccine it is not for everyone and your options as well as your risks should be thoroughly discussed with your healthcare professional before you receive the flu vaccine.
Even with all of the precautions taken there is a small chance that you could experience an adverse reaction to the flu vaccine. These happen for unknown reasons in a small number of people who are vaccinated and the flu vaccine can leave you with some serious side effects such as Guillain-Barré syndrome which impacts your nervous system and your ability to move one or more limbs. There are also other devastating side effects.
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Act was developed in the late 1980’s to help compensate people who suffer serious adverse reactions leaving them with permanent injuries as a result of being vaccinated. The flu vaccine is one of those vaccines covered by the Act. If you have suffered a serious side effect from a flu vaccine you would be entitled to compensation for your out-of-pocket expenses as well as your pain and suffering and future needs if appropriate. We have been representing people injured from adverse reactions to vaccines including the flu vaccine since shortly before the Act began. The Program pays for your attorney’s fees and costs so there is no financial risk for you to pursue a claim as long as it is legitimate. If you or a loved one have suffered any serious adverse reactions as a result of the flu vaccine or any vaccine for that matter please contact me for a no cost, no obligation consultation.
