I realize there are a lot of new folks finding this website because of a mis-administered COVID-19 vaccine. To begin learning about shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), feel free to begin with the intro page here. My personal journey through SIRVA is written up in several posts and please also see the other guest blog posts to hear other stories.
This post is a look at new articles published about SIRVA in the last few months, both in the medical literature and in the news. This includes the first articles I’ve seen about SIRVA cases specifically from the COVID-19 vaccine. All of the journal articles get added to the collection on the Resources Page. As always, if I’ve missed anything, please let me know!!
SIRVA in the News
In great news, the Department of Health and Human Services decided to keep SIRVA as part of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP):
An opinion piece in the a local paper from a SIRVA patient who advocates for getting your COVID-19 vaccination:
A news piece on SIRVA from the COVID vaccine:
An article about preventing SIRVA:
And another similar one about safe injection:
New SIRVA Research
A few peer-reviewed articles came out this spring. Also, I was researching infections from vaccination (which may have happened to me), and which is not always described as SIRVA exactly, so there are a few older articles (which are new to me) about septic symptoms post-vaccination.
As always, most of these are behind a paywall. Usually I’m able to get access to these journals, but this time I couldn’t get all of them, so if you happen to have access and can send me pdf’s of the last two articles so I can keep my collection complete, that would be awesome!! The rest I have. And please see the Resources page for a lot more papers.
