Have you recently received a vaccination? Are you now experiencing shoulder pain? Your shoulder pain very well could be because of the vaccination. It might be hard to believe, but shoulder injuries caused by the actual administration of a vaccine happens more often than you may think.
The U.S. government’s vaccine court compensations people who suffer shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration, or SIRVA. SIRVA generally is caused by receiving a vaccine too high on the arm. This can injure tendons, ligaments or bursa, causing sudden, intense shoulder pain. The vaccine injury compensation program will likely compensate people suffer severe persistent shoulder pain starting within 40 hours after the injection and lasting more than six months.
Just a few years ago one had to go to their doctor’s office to receive a vaccine. Now you can be vaccinated at the grocery store. Shoulder injuries related to vaccination will continue to increase in the years to come.
