Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA) is a growing problem for patients and vaccine administrators alike. As more people receive vaccinations, greater numbers of individuals are experiencing shoulder injuries due to the faulty administration of vaccines.
There are several ways that shoulder injury related to vaccine administration may manifest, and all individuals who are vaccinated through the use of hypodermic needles are at risk for suffering from this injury. While most individuals who experience vaccine-related shoulder injuries eventually recover, often these individuals incur substantial medical bills and financial and emotional burdens along the way.
Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration
The acronym “SIRVA” or shoulder injury related to vaccine administration is a catch-all term that encompasses a number of injuries that can occur following receipt of a vaccine. In most cases, these injuries occur when vaccine administration causes damage to the muscles, joints, bursae, or tendons in the shoulder. This damage leads to symptoms such as sharp or stabbing pain, weakness, loss of sensation, and limited range of motion. Swelling, buildup of scar tissue, and other complications can lead to more serious forms of SIRVA as well.
Some of the more common types of shoulder injuries related to vaccinations include:
Causes of Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA)
The medical professional who administers your vaccine is responsible for avoiding any conditions that may lead to complications or painful shoulder injuries. Unfortunately, improper administrations and other issues can possibly lead to avoidable mistakes such as:
- Injecting the vaccine at the wrong location on the shoulder
- Injecting the vaccine too deep into the muscle
- Use of the wrong needle length for the patient’s weight and/or body type
As a patient, everyone should learn the warning signs of errors that can lead to a vaccine-related shoulder injury. Although you may not be able to prevent a mistake, understanding the risks and the symptoms of SIRVA will help you know when to seek treatment for a possible vaccine-related injury.
Treatment for SIRVA
Treatment options for SIRVA vary widely depending on the nature and extent of the injury. For certain types of shoulder pain or injuries, rest and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can relieve symptoms in as little as a few weeks. However, other shoulder injuries may require steroid injections, surgery, and months or even years of prescription medications and physical therapy.
To avoid the risk of further injury, all individuals suffering from SIRVA should seek to obtain a complete and thorough diagnosis before undertaking any form of treatment for their injury.
