The Unfortunate Impact of Vaccine Injuries on Individuals and Their Families

Vaccine injuries, though rare, can have devastating consequences for individuals and their families. The physical and emotional toll of such injuries often extends far beyond the initial trauma, affecting every aspect of daily life. For those who experience severe adverse reactions, the journey to recovery can be long and arduous, filled with medical treatments, therapies, and ongoing health challenges.

The impact of a vaccine injury is not limited to the individual alone. Families are often thrust into roles they are unprepared for, becoming caregivers and advocates overnight. This sudden shift can: 

  • Strain relationships
  • Lead to financial hardships due to medical expenses and lost income
  • Create an atmosphere of constant worry and uncertainty about the future

You need not suffer alone. Contact My Vaccine Lawyer to see how we can help you recover what you deserve.

Common Types of Vaccine Injuries in California

In 2021, approximately 14.8% of Californians were 65 years and older (U.S. Census Bureau, 2022). This demographic in California often receives vaccines aimed at preventing diseases more prevalent in older adults. Some of the most common types of vaccine injuries in California include:

  • Influenza (Flu) Vaccine Injuries: Including those from FluMist, FluShield, Fluvirin, Fluzone, and Afluria, flu vaccines are commonly administered to the elderly to prevent severe flu complications. Injuries can include Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) and Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Tdap) Vaccine Injuries: Given to boost immunity, especially after certain injuries, the Tdap vaccine can sometimes cause severe shoulder pain or other complications.

My Vaccine Lawyer does not only represent our older citizens. We will stand in your corner if you have suffered a vaccine injury after taking other potentially problematic vaccines, such as:

Financial Impact of Vaccine Injuries

Vaccine injuries result in significant financial burdens, particularly due to medical expenses. According to the Social Security Administration, the average Social Security benefit in 2021 was about $1,550 per month, or approximately $18,500 per year. The average salary in California in 2022 was $78,000 per year, or about $1,500 per week. When a vaccine injury occurs, individuals may need to take time off work for treatment and recovery, leading to a substantial loss of income.

For instance, a common vaccine injury such as Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) can require extensive physical therapy, medical appointments, and potentially surgery. The cost of treating SIRVA can range from $5,000 to $20,000 or more, depending on the severity of the injury and the required treatments. This does not include the additional financial strain of lost wages during the recovery period.

Clearly, the average individual in California does not have the means to handle a vaccine injury without support, especially financially. Vaccine injuries can happen to anyone at any time. Do not let yourself become another statistic; become a success story.

Flu Shot - Shoulder Tendonitis - $130,000

A California woman suffered a shoulder injury leading to surgery after a flu shot. The client received a flu shot at a local pharmacy and within 24 hours was unable to move her arm. She was diagnosed with bursitis, tendonitis, and adhesive capsulitis, and treated with physical therapy and a steroid injection. When the treatment failed to provide relief, she was forced to undergo an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair but continued to experience pain and reduced range of motion.
