Back to School Vaccines and Side Effects

It is that time of the year again, back to school, and before sending your children off for the first day of a new grade, you have no choice but to think about having them vaccinated.  You might want to vaccinate your children to protect them from preventable diseases and/or your state may require that your children receive certain inoculations before allowing them to register for school.  Either way, although complications from vaccinations are rare, it is important to educate yourself about the side effects of vaccines, some of which may be serious, before bringing your child to the doctor for their shots.  Listed below are four common vaccines given to children from the time they are newborns to age 18, and the side effects that can result.

Eleven Year Old Girl Injured By HPV, Tdap Vaccines

Children are injured in many different ways.  When a child is injured by something that is supposed to protect them, it is particularly disturbing.  Unfortunately, although a rare occurrence, these are the circumstances in vaccine injury cases that involve children.  A good example is the case of an 11 year old Arkansas girl that suffered serious side effects as a result of the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) and Tdap (meningococcal, hepatitis A, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccinations

What is Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA)?

SIRVA is a newly identified vaccine injury that is surfacing in vaccinated patients around the country. The damage from SIRVA centers on the shoulder or upper arm where the vaccine was administered. SIRVA is caused by the injection or administration of the vaccine itself, not from the contents of the vaccine being administered. SIRVA is an injury that occurs to the musculoskeletal structures of the shoulder such as the tendons, ligaments or bursa, due to a vaccine’s improper administration.

Flu Shots and Potential Adverse Reactions

Individuals have been known to experience adverse reactions from their annual flu vaccines. One of the most common of these reactions is Guillain-Barre Syndrome, or GBS, but other types of adverse reactions can occur. GBS is a severe paralytic illness. Because it is administered annually, the flu shot is one of the most common vaccinations received in the United States. Although most people have only minor reactions, many people can be affected each year. The Law Offices of Leah V. Durant, PLLC, specializes in cases involving adverse reactions to flu vaccinations. Vaccine attorney Leah Durant understands how the flu shot can cause Gullain-Barre Syndrome and represents GBS clients in their cases before the Court of Federal Claims, all at no charge to the client. While GBS may be transient, it can be devastating to those who suffer from it. The Law Offices of Leah V. Durant PLLC, also represents those who suffer from the more chronic type of GBS, often referred to as Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, or CIDP. Those who suffer from CIDP face years of neurological symptoms with little relief. Vaccine Attorney Leah Durant focuses on GBS and CIDP cases and her legal fees and costs are paid by the court, not the client.

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

While most vaccinations carry many more benefits than risks for the patient, vaccine law specialist Leah Durant knows that, as with any medication or medical procedure, there will always be some degree of risk involved. In most cases, the side effects associated with vaccinations are mild and temporary, involving symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, or slight pain or irritation at the site of injection.

However, in some rare cases, a vaccine injection can bring with it much more serious consequences. Vaccines have been associated with neurological conditions such as Guillain Barre Syndrome and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, seizure disorders, encephalopathy (brain injury), allergic reactions, blood disorders, shoulder injuries, immunologic disorders, and others.  These and other serious potential injuries associated with vaccinations can prove life-altering or, at times, even deadly.

This is why Leah Durant and her firm specialize in vaccine litigation.  The Law Offices of Leah V. Durant, PLLC exists to assist individuals with claims of serious injury as a result of receiving a vaccination.
