Flu Vaccine Injury
Flu Vaccine Injury
No one wants to get sick. As cold and flu season starts, many of us will go to the doctor or pharmacy to get the flu vaccine. We don’t even think about it. More people opt to not get the vaccine. Some are concerned with the possibility of flu vaccine injury. Every year, less than half of Americans get the flu shot. Most of us have reasons for or against the flu shot.
Risk Of Not Getting The Flu Shot
There are risks of not getting the flu vaccine. Elderly and infants are at greater risk of illness or death because of weaker immune systems. Additionally, about 25,000 people die of the flu each year. These deaths might be prevented if those people had the flu vaccine.
Flu Vaccine Injury Risks
It’s true, any medical treatment can have risks. But, injuries associated with the flu vaccine are often caused by injection mistakes or improper storage. Injuries include arm numbness, pain, and more. What can I do if I’m injured by the flu vaccine? There is a fund available to compensate flu vaccine injury patients.
Flu Vaccine Injury Compensation
There is a federal fund available to help people injured by vaccines. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created in the 1980s. VICP works to reduce lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers and compensate those with vaccine injuries. Only specific vaccines are covered, but the flu shot is on the list of eligible vaccines.
