There have also been reports of multiple sclerosis, seizures, and neuropathy (nerve damage) occurring after Hepatitis A vaccination, although it is unknown whether these injuries are a direct result of the vaccine though these injuries have been reported on the Vaccine Injury Adverse Event Reporting System, leading federal health agencies to investigate as part of the ongoing monitoring of vaccine safety.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an autoimmune condition, in which the immune system attacks the nervous system. GBS leads to nerve damage, and victims find themselves with weakness, tingling, numbness and sometimes paralysis. Guillain-Barre usually affects individuals recovering from an infection.

Although not one of the recognized side effects, there are reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome after Hepatitis A vaccination. You may be entitled to compensation if you developed Guillain-Barre shortly after being vaccinated with Hepatitis A. Consult our vaccine injury lawyers about your eligibility.
