What is Hepatitis A?
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious viral infection that affects the liver. It is caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV) found in infected individuals' feces. The virus is usually spread through contaminated food or water or by close personal contact with an infected person.

Cheryl suffered SIRVA (shoulder injury related to vaccine administration) following a flu shot. Her vaccine injury claim was filed in the VICP by vaccine lawyer Max Muller where she obtained a settlement for her injury, lost wages and out of pocket expenses.
Common Hepatitis A Vaccine Side Effects
If you are considering getting vaccinated against Hepatitis A, it's important to know that it is generally safe and effective. However, like all vaccines, it can cause some side effects. The most common side effects of the Hepatitis A vaccine include soreness or redness at the injection site, headache, fatigue, and fever. These side effects are usually mild and go away within a few days.
More serious side effects may occur in rare cases, such as an allergic reaction or a severe headache. If you experience any unusual symptoms after receiving the vaccine, such as difficulty breathing or swelling of the face or throat, seek medical attention immediately.
What kind of serious injuries can a hepatitis a vaccination cause?
In rare cases, more serious side effects may occur. These can include severe allergic reactions, such as difficulty breathing or swelling of the face or throat, seizures, brain inflammation, and Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). This rare neurological disorder can cause muscle weakness and paralysis.
It's important to note that the risks of serious injury from the Hepatitis A vaccine are extremely low compared to those of contracting Hepatitis A, which can cause serious and potentially life-threatening liver damage. The benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks of any potential side effects
Diagnosing and Treating Hepatitis A Vaccine Injuries
If you suspect that you or a loved one has experienced an injury related to the Hepatitis A vaccine, it's important to seek medical attention immediately. Your healthcare provider can perform a physical examination and order any necessary tests to diagnose the injury and determine the best course of treatment.
In many cases, injuries related to the Hepatitis A vaccine are mild and go away on their own within a few days. Common treatments for mild side effects may include over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, to relieve pain or reduce fever.
For more serious injuries, such as severe allergic reactions or neurological disorders like Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), hospitalization and specialized treatment may be necessary. Treatment for these more serious injuries may include medications to reduce inflammation or manage symptoms and supportive care to help manage complications and aid in recovery.
How We Can Help With Your Hepatitis A Vaccine Injury
Hepatitis A Vaccine injuries can change your life, and you may be qualified to receive financial compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
After lawsuits against vaccine companies and healthcare providers in the 1980s threatened to reduce U.S. vaccination rates and cause a resurgence of vaccine-preventable diseases, the VICP was created.
At My Vaccine Lawyers, our team can help you file a claim and guide you through the entire process with the VICP if you have suffered from vaccine-related injuries.
I reached out to My Vaccine Lawyer after confirming I suffered from SIRVA. They were so helpful, understanding and thorough throughout the process. They were quick to respond, always answered the phone and I feel they fought to get me what I was entitled to. If you suffered from an injury then please call My Vaccine Lawyer. They will take care of you!
