Parents Initiate Lawsuit Over Mandatory Flu Vaccine

The flu vaccine has been touted as a necessary and harmless protectant against the dangers of the flu virus – which can lead to significant health problems in the children, elderly and immunosuppressed. However, some are also skeptical of the vaccine’s potential side effects, and have refused to administer this particular inoculation to their children. Nevertheless, health officials in New York City have unilaterally decided that the flu vaccine is a necessary component to the state-run daycare and preschool system – and mandated that all enrollees accept the vaccination or face expulsion.

California General Assembly Passes Bill Mandating Adult Vaccines for Certain Childcare Workers

In the American vaccination landscape, many wrongfully believe that only children are subject to the mandates of the “standard” inoculation schedule.

Vaccines Make Headlines Again With New California Law

A recent California Law has outlawed a family’s personal and religious beliefs as reasons for refusing to vaccinate their child. The law requires that children enrolling in daycare or school be immunized against diseases such as measles and whooping cough. The only exemption to the requirement is for children with certain medical problems, including certain immune system deficiencies. If parents refuse to vaccinate their child, he or she loses the right to attend school or daycare and instead is relegated to a home-based private school or a public independent study program off campus.

Understanding the Vaccine Injury Table and Your Right to Financial Compensation

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) provides an opportunity for individuals who have suffered complications from vaccinations to recover financial compensation without the need to prove that someone else is liable for their injuries.

But, in many cases, victims can seek compensation for complications not listed on the Vaccine Injury Table as well.

Awards Increase for Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) Cases

Can you be compensated for SIRVA?

It seems simple -- your doctor recommends that you get the flu shot this fall before flu season is in full swing. You receive the shot and all is well, right? Wrong. First of all, the flu shot only protects against certain strains of the flu, so you may still get sick from one of the strains that is not covered by the vaccine. Second, as with any vaccine, you may end up suffering from a serious injury to your shoulder. Fortunately, the vaccine court has been handing out higher awards recently to those who have suffered shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA).
