The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out over $25 million in damages

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out over $25 million in damages to victims of serious shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration in the United States so far this year, according to WSOC-TV.
Over 220 people have been compensated so far in 2016 for SIRVA — shoulder injury related to vaccine administration — a painful and debilitating side effect that sometimes comes after vaccination.
Dr. Tom Shimabukuro of the CDC says that the condition is rare. These injuries occur when vaccines are not given in the proper part of the shoulder. Vaccines should be given in the thick portion of the deltoid muscle, he says, not higher up near the shoulder.
