The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national safety surveillance program that collects information about adverse events related to vaccines.
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration, monitors vaccine reactions in order to help to identify important safety concerns. The system has received more than 200,000 reports since 1990, which range from mild side effects to serious vaccine adverse reactions associated with death, disability, hospitalization or life-threatening illness.
If you’ve reported an adverse event to VAERS or are considering reporting one, contact the vaccine injury lawyers at Anapol Weiss for a free legal evaluation. You or your loved one may be entitled to compensation, but your state limits the amount of time you have to file a vaccine injury claim.
Serious adverse events include:
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Brachial Neuritis
- Transverse myelitis
- Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
- Neurological injury
- Shoulder injury
- Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP)
These and other rare vaccine side effects occur without warning, and they can be deadly or cause permanent health problems. Life is suddenly turned upside-down, regardless of whether the victim is an adult or child. In addition to the physical pain and emotional stress that results from these reactions, victims and their families face the financial burden of juggling lost wages, therapy and treatment costs, and medical bills.
