IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING FLU SHOTS AND GUILLAIN BARRE SYNDROME
Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) can strike anyone. It can be triggered by flu shots and other vaccines. Most people recover from GBS, but it is a long and painful process.
The Health and Human Services Department has announced proposed changes to the Vaccine Injury program that, if approved, could improve one's chances of obtaining compensation especially with regard to flu vaccine induced Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) and shoulder injuries related to vaccines (SIRVA). The time for filing the claim will be extended from 3 years to approximately 8 years; anyone who has acquired GBS or a shoulder injury following a flu vaccine should consult an attorney knowledgeable about vaccine litigation.
