About DTaP Vaccine Injuries

The DTaP vaccine is administered to children, typically before they turn seven years old. As the vaccinated individuals grow and mature, they receive a booster referred to as the TDaP vaccine. Both vaccines work to prevent pertussis (known as whooping cough), tetanus (known as lockjaw), and diphtheria. All three of these are serious bacterial diseases that can cause severe consequences.

Children typically receive five DTaP vaccine doses at the following ages: two months, four months, six months, 15 to 18 months, and four to six years. Since immunity diminishes over time, most doctors recommend getting a TDaP booster shot every 10 years. The TDaP booster is essentially the same as the DTaP vaccine except in a lower dosage.

While negative side effects caused by the vaccine are rare, they can occur, and they are extremely serious.

Some side effects of the DTaP vaccine may include:

  • Coma

  • Shock

  • Brain damage

  • Breathing difficulties

  • Lowered consciousness

  • Fever (over 105 degrees)

  • Seizures (staring or jerking)

  • Encephalitis/encephalopathy

  • Life-threatening allergic reaction

  • Joint pain and stiffness

  • Severe swelling and pain at the injection site

  • Brachial neuritis (muscular and neurological disease)

  • Severe vomiting, lack of appetite, tiredness, or fatigue

Compensation for Individuals Harmed by TDaP / DTaP Vaccines

If you or a loved one has been injured or become ill after receiving a TDaP or DTaP vaccine, you may have a claim to compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP is a federal trust fund created for the benefit of individuals of any age who are harmed by vaccines as an alternative to the traditional legal system.

You may be able to secure compensation for:

  • Medical bills

  • Lost income

  • Lost earning potential

  • Disability benefits

  • And more
