You're worried about vaccines. You've seen articles warning you about complications and injuries. You want to protect yourself and your children.
If so, you should know that the most common injury is also one of the most easily overlooked. Some reports say most injuries come from poorly administered vaccine injections.
After all, you're letting the doctor put a long needle through your skin and into the muscles and tissue below. This may be commonplace, but it still brings risk of injury if not done correctly. Doctors who are in a rush or poorly trained could make errors.
Some of the symptoms to watch out for include:
- Excessive pain during the shot.
- Painful inflammation at the site.
- Stiffness that essentially freezes your shoulder in place.
- Any other loss of motion; this may be a complete loss or simply a reduction in range.
- Rotator cuff injuries, including tears. These can also limit your range of motion.
- Brachial neuritis. This is an acute pain in your shoulder. After you feel it, you can then have paralysis of the joint.
If this happens, it harms you twice. First, is the poorly administered vaccine going to work properly? Second, you're now dealing with a range of ailments and symptoms that you never had to start. They can be worse than the sickness and disease you're trying to avoid by getting the shot.
You may wind up facing high medical bills and extensive pain and suffering that could easily have been avoided if the doctor was competent. You must know if you have a right to financial compensation.
