What is a SIRVA Injury?

A SIRVA injury is a Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration.
SIRVA is a medical term used to describe any one of the various shoulder injuries caused by an improper vaccine injection.

Common shots such as the influenza vaccine, tetanus, or the TDaP and DTaP vaccines can be administered improperly and cause severe pain. Roughly 70% of shoulder related vaccine injuries are caused by the flu vaccine.

A SIRVA injury usually occurs during injection site events when the vaccine administration is too high into the deltoid muscle at the top of the arm or shoulder capsule often causing pain and limited range of motion. It is unlikely that a vaccination given lower on the arm will cause a shoulder injury (although it may cause other inflammatory injuries).

How does a SIRVA injury happen?

In many cases, the injury is caused by a vaccine being injected too high on the arm (indicated as a intramuscular deltoid injection on a medical record).

Medical professionals who administer vaccinations are susceptible to mistakes, especially when the needle is inserted near the top of the shoulder where there are several sensitive areas, including the bursa sac. The bursa functions as a lubricant and allows the muscles, tendons and bones of the shoulder joint to move smoothly.

A vaccine administered into the bursa can penetrate the fluid-filled sac, causing an inflammatory response. The inflammation can present in the bursa (bursitis), tendons (tendonitis) or around the rotator cuff. Inflammation causes pain and reduced range of motion.

Those who believe they may have been injured should be cognizant of prolonged weakness in their affected shoulder. It is important to seek treatment sooner rather than later as side effects can persist indefinitely.

How is SIRVA diagnosed?

Other factors into a shoulder injury related to vaccine administration are crucial.

Shorter needles run the risk of more painful injections, a less effective vaccine, or sometimes increased chances of a skin reaction. If the needle is too long, it may hit a nerve or bone in the recipient.

According to the United States National Library of Medicine, SIRVA instances are severely underreported throughout the United States and the rest of the globe. The incorrect administration technique by a medical professional can trigger an immune response or numerous inflammatory reactions within the recipient’s shoulder.

Usually, symptoms begin within 48 hours of vaccination and can range from any of the following:
