Vaccine injuries are rare occurrences . With large numbers of people being vaccinated, we may well likely hear other stories. Hopefully, they will be very rare. This is a very sad story of a young woman that had a reaction to the seasonal flu vaccine.
It is as important to track these cases as it is to track deaths from the flu.
Quote from www.myfoxatlanta.com
An Ashburn, Virginia woman is in the fight of her life after suffering a very rare side effect to the seasonal flu shot.
The vast majority of doctors say flu shots are safe. In this case, the FDA says they found nothing wrong with this particular batch, but sometimes there are complications.
That's apparently what happened to Desiree Jennings, and now her life will never be the same.
At 26 years old, Desiree Jennings was the picture of health. She's a Washington Redskins cheerleader and an avid runner. Her life changed forever on August 23 when she says she got a seasonal flu shot at a local grocery store.
