Have you suffered a Hepatitis B vaccine injury?

Often administered to young children, the Hepatitis B vaccine is a multi-dose vaccination that has been known to cause various adverse reactions and injuries including, but not limited to; SIRVAshoulder injuries, Anaphylaxis, seizures, and neurological complications. This is why Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program ("VICP") – to help the victims of adverse vaccine reactions. The program allows those of any age across the United States who believe that they may have suffered an injury from one of the covered vaccines to file a claim. If you or a loved one has suffered a reaction or injury after receiving the Hepatitis B vaccine, speak with a hepatitis vaccine lawyer at My Vaccine Lawyer immediately.


What is the Hepatitis B vaccine?

The Hepatitis B vaccine is often administered to both children and adults to prevent contraction of Hepatitis B, both Acute and Chronic cases.  Hepatitis B is a serious infection that attacks the liver. It usually offered in three (3) intramuscular vaccinations, with the second and third administrations offered one (1) and six (6) months after the first vaccine. Throughout the country, the Hepatitis B vaccine is usually administered to infants at birth, with a second dose at one to two (1 to 2) months old and a third dose at 6-18 months old. Adults who have not received the Hepatitis B vaccine as a child are heavily advised by their medical providers to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine series.
