Flu Shot Vaccine Injuries In The Arm

vaccineMillions of Americans get routine influenza vaccinations. In particular, older adults have a high rate of vaccination with more than 65 percent of adults over the age of 65 getting such vaccinations.

Unfortunately, new reports indicate that the flu vaccine injection process may not be safe. Patients have reported serious injuries after a vaccination.

Patients have experienced nerve damage, chronic pain and have reported partial or total paralysis in some cases.

Many of the injured individuals report receiving their vaccinations at out-patient pharmacies such as those located in a Walmart or CVS retail location.

Unfortunately, technicians at these locations may be improperly administering the flu shot. Doctors report that the injuries are common when the flu shot is placed too high on the arm. Patients who suffer often require surgery or high doses of anti-pain medications.

The incidence of injured flu patients has become so common that the American Association of Pharmacists have put together a blueprint advising practitioners on how to properly administer a flu shot.

Fortunately for injured individuals, there is a remedy that offers them compensation for their injuries. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program can compensate victims if they are successful in making a claim.

An attorney can help a family recover from the fund, which is financed through taxes on vaccines paid by the drug companies.

While patients are barred from suing the vaccine manufacturers directly, they can file a claim with the fund and prove their injuries in order to receive compensation. An attorney can help with the entire process.
