Common Flu Shot Injuries and Illnesses

The flu shot is the most widely administered vaccine in the United States, with approximately half of the population being vaccinated against the flu each year. While most people do not experience any ill effects from the flu shot, a small percentage may develop immunization-related injuries or illnesses, such as shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Bell’s palsy, or even Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS).
