2013 flu vaccine not very effective
This year's flu vaccine was far less effective than officials previously thought, particularly for the elderly, according to officials with the CDC. The vaccine was only 9% effective in protecting people in that age group. An H3N2 flu strain has been the most dominant and has been especially hard on the elderly. Despite the fact that the flu shot doesn't work very well, the risks of developing an adverse reaction to the flu shot and sustaining a vaccine injury remain the same.
The FDA has approved two new flu vaccines for people with egg allergies
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved two new flu vaccines that would give people who are allergic to eggs an opportunity to receive a flu shot. Currently, people with egg allergies cannot get a flu vaccine because it is egg-based. The vaccine is made after the influenza virus grows inside an egg. At this point, someone with an egg allergy who receives the seasonal flu vaccination is at risk from suffering a flu shot side effect such as anaphylaxis.
Supreme Court to consider attorney's fees issue in vaccine injury claim
The United States Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether a party who suffered a vaccine injury but whose petition under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was dismissed as untimely may recover an award of attorney fees and costs from the Vaccine Program. Many times a Vaccine Injury Attorney will take a client's case and be forced to proceed with the vaccine claim before all of the facts are determined. The Vaccine Attorney makes the claim in good faith, even though there is a chance that the claim may be determined at a later date to be time barred.
