Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) After Influenza Vaccination

by | Jan 7, 2024 | Flu Shot Injuries, Vaccine Injuries, Vaccine Injury Compensation Program |

Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is a neurological disorder where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the peripheral nerves, leading to weakness, numbness, and in severe cases, paralysis. GBS can sometimes occur after infections or vaccinations, particularly the influenza vaccine.

In the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, GBS is a well-recognized adverse event following influenza vaccination.  In fact, if your symptoms of GBS appear within 3 to 42 days after the flu shot, causation is presumed in the VICP.  We have handled hundreds of demyelinating disease cases over the years, including many GBS cases following the flu shot.

If you or a family member believe you have been injured by the flu shot, you need to hire an experienced VICP attorney to handle your case.  If you would like to explore filing a claim in the VICP, call or email us today. We are available 24/7 to help.
