HOW DOES THE VACCINE PROGRAM COMPENSATE AN INJURED PARTY?

WHAT IS GUILLAIN-BARRÉ SYNDROME (GBS)?

 

Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is an autoimmune disease whereby the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system and causes muscle weakness, numbness and tingling in the upper and lower extremities including the arms, legs, and face. In extreme cases GBS may cause paralysis.  Although, Guillain-Barré Syndrome symptoms can present as early as one day post-vaccination, symptoms more commonly appear around three to several weeks post-vaccination.
