Welcome!

URGENT! Please read this post about the proposed change to the Vaccine Injury Table. There is a new action item for everyone (submit your public comment between 7/20/20 and 1/12/21). There is background information on the above post.

Hi! I started this site because I couldn’t find anything similar on the web, a clearinghouse for useful information about treatment options and recovery for Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA). I found a few newspaper articles, a few journal articles, blog stories, and many forum posts, but I wanted to bring it all together to a place for people to talk about SIRVA with others who have had it. Most importantly, I wanted to figure out a way to collect (anonymous) information about the following:

  • How long did it take for you to recover from SIRVA?
  • What treatments did you find effective?

That’s why I started the SIRVA Survey. Please consider filling it out, thereby contributing to a greater understanding of this condition! Responses will always be completely anonymous and will help us all out greatly. The initial survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, and there will soon be a Follow-Up SIRVA Survey to let you add new information once you are further along in your recovery.

Key findings from the SIRVA Survey will be published periodically in the Blog, along with news and updates about SIRVA from the medical and legal worlds. Start here for basic information about SIRVA, its symptoms, causes, and more resources. For more randomly organized information about my progress and what I’ve learned, check out the blog posts.
