Can a Vaccine Cause Nerve Damage?

While most vaccines do not result in injury, no vaccine is without risk. Some people will experience the typical pain that subsides on its own, in relatively quick fashion. However, in rare cases, a vaccine can cause nerve damage to the shoulder and/or other areas of the body.

There are a variety of a different nerve related issues that have been linked to vaccines. Some are caused by improper injection techniques, but others are the result of the immune system’s response to a vaccine. A nerve injury can be serious, and it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible if one believes he/she has suffered a nerve injury. Treatment will vary depending on the condition or disorder that results from the nerve damage. In some cases, rehabilitation will be the primary treatment option, but some may require much more intensive treatment.

Some of the nerve related injuries that occur after vaccination include Brachial Neuritis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), Parsonage Turner Syndrome, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP), and Transverse Myelitis.

If you believe you have experienced any of these vaccine injuries mentioned, it is imperative that you contact an attorney who can represent your interests. Specifically, you will want an attorney that is familiar with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) – a program designed to compensate individuals who have suffered injury as a result of a vaccine – not a general personal injury lawyer.
