Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) Lawsuit

Vaccine Shoulder Injuries Remain Eligible for Compensation

September 7, 2021 — As a way to encourage people to get vaccinated, President Biden eliminated a Trump-era rule that would have banned shoulder injuries from a list of vaccine injuries eligible for compensation.

All vaccines have side effects. The most common are mild pain, headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, and more. But in some cases, vaccines can cause serious shoulder injuries with long-term effects.

In recent years, hundreds of people have sought compensation for Shoulder Injuries Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA), mostly from flu shots that were injected too high or too deep into the arm.

Just before President Trump left office, he issued a rule to eliminate SIRVA from the list of vaccine injuries that are eligible for compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

The new rule would have taken effect by February 22, 2021, but the incoming Biden administration put it on pause, citing concerns that it would leave doctors and pharmacies vulnerable to lawsuits.

President Biden asked the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to review the rule, and ultimately decided to reverse the Trump rule.

It is important to note that SIRVA is far more serious than just a sore arm. Victims are often left with long-term pain, limited range of motion, chronic inflammation, and other problems with tendons and ligaments.
