What is SIRVA - Vaccination Attorneys

Many shoulder-injected vaccines such as a flu shot or tetanus shot can leave you with slight pain or discomfort that disappears within a couple of days, but SIRVA is an injury with long-term effects, causing severe pain and limited range of motion to the shoulder and upper arm.

What is SIRVA?
SIRVA—Shoulder Injuries Related to Vaccine Administration—is not a specific injury, but a category of injuries that can occur due to the improper administration of a vaccine.

The symptoms of SIRVA usually begin with pain at the injection site within 24 hours of the vaccination, limited range of motion, tingling or loss of feeling and weakness. SIRVA is not caused by the administered vaccine but by trauma from the needle. When the shoulder is punctured by the needle, the tendons, muscles and ligaments can become aggravated, leading to an inflammatory reaction. Common causes of SIRVA include improper needle length or incorrect administration of the vaccine.

Common medical diagnoses related to SIRVA

  • Deltoid Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Rotator Cuff Tear

Treatment
SIRVA is usually treated like any injury, through pain medication and physical therapy to recover the shoulder’s range of motion. In severe cases, surgery may be the only option to repair the damage caused to the shoulder.
