Every year, health care professionals urge people to get flu vaccines. Although vaccines have been instrumental in eradicating disease, they sometimes cause side effects and carry risk of injury for a small percentage of the population. In recognition of injuries caused by vaccines, the National Vaccine Compensation Program was enacted by Congress to compensate those injured or harmed by routine vaccinations.
In connection with flu vaccines, one type of injury that sometimes occurs is Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). This disorder results in damaged nerve cells, muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. Triggering causes of Guillain-Barré syndrome have been identified as:
- Respiratory illness
- A flu virus
