Can Your Employer Force You To Get A Flu Shot?

Can my employer make me get a flu shot?

The issue of vaccine injuries has left both employers and employees with a question that may not have a definite answer. With the beginning of each flu season, both employers and employees may wonder if an employer can legally mandate an employee to get a flu shot in order to maintain employment with the company. Clearly, the flu can knock out a large percentage of an entire workforce, severely hampering productivity and day to day operations. So, is it legal for a business owner to adopt a mandatory flu shot policy?

Roundup Weed Killer Linked to non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Roundup Linked to non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma The popular weed and root killer Roundup™, which is currently the most popular and best selling herbicide in the world, is being investigated for claims that its active ingredient “glyphosate” may be linked to an increased risk of cancer, or more specifically, non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). Plaintiffs also claim that the product’s manufacturer, Monsanto, failed to sufficiently warn its users of these increased risks in order to avoid profit losses, as the company has known of the link between its product and potential cancer cases for more than 30 years.   Lawsuit Allegations: Lawsuits filed against Monsanto contain a combination...

The 2017-2018 Flu Season: Facts, Symptoms, Complications and Treatment

Flu Season: 2017 - 2018 In literal terms, the flu season is an annually (yearly) recurring period of time that is characterized by the prevalence of influenza virus outbreaks. Due to the frequency of germ spreading actions (sneezing, coughing, etc..) in lower temperatures, the flu season occurs during the colder half of the year. Thus, the flu season typically lasts from October through March, occasionally until May, and reaches it’s peak around February. This year’s flu season follows suit; it officially began roughly one week ago (October 2017) despite unusually high temperatures around the country, and will run through until March 2018....

The Vaccine Injury Table Has Been Revised to Include GBS and SIRVA

The Vaccine Injury Table is a chart that outlines vaccines and possible vaccine injuries that are recognized as compensable cases by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). While vaccine injuries not listed on the table may also be compensated, if a vaccine injury fits within the parameters set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table, the burden shifts to the government to prove that the vaccine did not cause the injury. These “table cases” are often easier to prove in Court. As of late 2016, two common vaccine injuries, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (“GBS”) and SIRVA (“Shoulder Injury Resulting from Vaccine Administration”), were not...

Potential Lawsuits for Reactions to The Zostavax Vaccine

Those who have suffered an injury from the Zostavax (shingles) vaccine remain ineligible for compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).  However, new information has come to light and victims may be eligible to pursue a direct claim against the pharmaceutical manufacturer. We are working with a law firm that is currently investigating the possibility of lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies involved in the production of the Zostavax (shingles) vaccination. Zostavax was developed as a vaccination against the chickenpox and shingles viruses, but the relatively new vaccine has been found to be ineffective, causing a range of very serious side effects. The drug...

Effective Immediately: The Statute of Limitations for Shoulder Injuries and Guillain-Barre Syndrome Cases Has Been Extended [Retroactively] to March 27th, 2009.

Effective March 21, 2017, the vaccine injury table was amended to include: Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) from an influenza vaccine; and Shoulder injury cases (SIRVA).   This means that someone diagnosed with a shoulder injury or GBS following a flu vaccine as far back as March 20, 2009, could be entitled to money damages.   Accordingly, if you or someone you know had GBS or a shoulder injury from vaccination at any time from March 20, 2009 forward, and you or that person either did not know about the vaccine program in time to file a claim or the claim was filed within the past...
