Uveitis from a Vaccine Reaction


Frequent causes of Uveitis are infection, injury, or an autoimmune or inflammatory disease. There may be a link between certain vaccines and Uveitis. In rare cases, the hepatitis B vaccine is shown to be a trigger for Uveitis. In even rarer cases, the human papillomavirus (HPV), diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT), flu shot, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), and varicella vaccines have a connection to Uveitis. The likelihood of a vaccine triggering Uveitis may be increased when in combination with two vaccines administered at the same time.

My experience with mctlaw for my hip claim was remarkable, I found the communication to be outstanding. I also felt they did an excellent job setting expectations and then delivering on those stated expectations. From net amount, timing of the settlement, how much each related party would receive etc. they were outstanding. I would highly recommend them. They are very professional and set the bar in vaccine injury practice.


Five stars for mctlaw! Paralegal Leslie Williams did an outstanding job communicating with us and keeping us informed. Thanks for all the help.


I am excited to be receiving my final payment so I can put all this behind me. I am really grateful to everyone who played a part in getting me this well deserved settlement as my life has been negatively impacted over the years.


We cannot thank you enough for the services your firm has provided for Marie and I in our time of need. I could not have chosen a finer firm near or far to represent us.

My first response is “Wow!” It has only been 11 months since I first heard of “SIRVA” and an HHS program that awarded compensation to its victims and only 7 months since MC&T accepted my case. I feel that your efforts on my part made all the difference.

Thanks to you I am living comfortably in my own home with assistance. After my devastating GBS diagnosis from the flu vaccine six years ago, I didn’t know what to do. Thank goodness I found you and your law firm. Thank you so much!
