Hepatitis B Vaccine Symptoms

Although rare, you may suffer a more severe reaction or injury as a result of the Hepatitis B vaccination. According to the Vaccine Injury Table, some of the possible injuries of the Hepatitis B vaccine include:

It's very rare for the Hepatitis B vaccine to cause long-term problems because it's a very safe vaccine. Most people don't have serious side effects that last a long time. Very rarely, some people have reported feeling weak or having tingling sensations, but this is not common. Hepatitis B vaccines long term side effects or worsening symptoms could also be early signs of serious illness including Guillain-Barre Syndrome ("GBS"), Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy ("CIDP"), optic neuritis, Transverse Myelitis and Parsonage-Turner Syndrome ("PTS"). Improper administration of the vaccination, can also result in shoulder-related injuries. Any neurological problems or other health issues you suffer after being vaccinated with Hepatitis B could be related to the inoculation.

If you became ill or disabled after a vaccination, or if you lost your child to the sometimes fatal reactions associated with vaccines, you deserve compensation for the resulting expenses and the debilitating pain and suffering caused by such a tragedy.
