Michael Stec wants people to know how he ended up in a hospital, paralyzed, and breathing through a ventilator tube, almost overnight. Stec told an NBC 6 reporter in Miami that when he arrived at the emergency room last October, unable to walk, the doctors immediately asked if he had gotten a flu vaccination. That’s when they diagnosed him with Guillain-Barré Syndrome. Stec was a bodybuilder in peak shape when GBS quickly paralyzed him. He stated that he told his story to NBC 6 because he wants people to know the risks before making a decision to get an influenza vaccine. Comments posted online about Stec’s experience include 3 people who state they experienced severe GBS within a week after getting the flu shot.
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
If you or a family member had a similar debilitating experience after a vaccination, there is a federal program that can help financially. It’s called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). However, getting compensated for your vaccine injury is a complex and challenging procedure. You’ll be pitted against experienced US Department of Justice attorneys while you try to make your claim and possibly go to trial. That’s why you need an experienced vaccine litigation attorney to help you file your claim and obtain compensation.
