This is created through the Food and Drug Administration.

Could I get the flu from the flu vaccine?

You cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine. However, there are side effects and symptoms that are common with the flu vaccine. Severe side effects include Guillain Barre syndrome. Other temporary symptoms include runny nose, headaches, muscle aches, and fever.

Pain is one of the most common symptoms as a result from a flu shot. Although a flu shot can be very beneficial, it still contains some risks, sometimes even serious symptoms.

How will I receive compensation for my vaccine injury in Los Angeles?

Compensation for vaccine injuries is available through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund.  This organization was established by the federal government after several vaccine manufacturers were sued. Through this program, those who have sustained injuries from vaccines can file a claim, and could potentially be reimbursed for their vaccine injuries.  Those who file a claim must have to show that they have sustained injuries because of the vaccine. They have to show the relationship between the vaccine and the injury. That’s why it is important to hire an experienced vaccine injury attorney who has navigated through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund in the past in order for you to receive maximum compensation for your injuries.

An experienced vaccine injury attorney will investigate your claim for you, and gather evidence as much as possible to back up your claim for the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund. These vaccine injury claims are filed in the United States Court of federal claims in Washington D.C. Call our attorneys today for a free case of valuation.

Administration of the Vaccine

Many don’t realize that they potentially have a valid lawsuit for medical malpractice if the vaccine was improperly administered.  For example, if a nurse fails to officially give the shot, and it damages the nerves, you may have a claim against the nurse and the hospital for medical malpractice. This could usually result in shoulder pain, bursitis, tendonitis, or injuries to the rotator cuff. Contact our Los Angeles medical malpractice attorneys to determine if you have a claim against a healthcare provider for your vaccine injury.

Could everyone get the flu shot?

There are some specific groups that may be more susceptible and sustaining injuries and symptoms after a flu shot. For example, those that are allergic to eggs are advised to not get the flu shot for fear of more severe symptoms. To determine if you’re eligible to receive the flu shot, contact your medical provider. Since the ingredients in strains for the flu shots change every year, you may be able to take it.

Treatment for Vaccine Injuries and Illnesses

The treatment for vaccine injuries depends on the injury sustained. For example,  Guillain-Barre syndrome needs long-term treatment compared to temporary migraines.
