If you have experienced SIRVA after receiving a vaccine, it’s essential to seek prompt medical attention from a healthcare provider. Symptoms of SIRVA may include severe shoulder pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is SIRVA?
SIRVA stands for Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration, which occurs when the vaccine is injected too high on the shoulder, resulting in an inflammatory response that damages the tendons and bursa in the shoulder.
What are the most common diagnoses associated with SIRVA injuries?
The most common diagnosis associated with SIRVA is adhesive capsulitis, which is commonly known as frozen shoulder. This condition causes limited range of motion and pain in the shoulder, making it difficult to move the arm above the head. Bursitis is also a common diagnosis, and in severe cases, a rotator cuff tear may occur.
Shoulder pain from vaccination? Understanding SIRVA diagnosis and treatment options
To diagnose and treat SIRVA injuries, doctors follow a specific protocol. Firstly, they conduct a physical examination, which may be followed by imaging tests such as an MRI or an EMG to rule out any underlying neurological conditions. Treatment options may include pain relievers, rest, work modification, and in severe cases, surgery may be required to correct the injury.
