Hi!! I'm trying to find out where to report GBS within 6 weeks of a flu vaccine last October. Was told it should be reported to


Posted by debbie rice

Received routine influenza vaccine last Oct. 26 while undergoing chemotherapy.  Vaccine was given just prior to 3rd dose of chemo as advised.  On Dec. 1, began having SEVERE pain in coccyx area and on Dec. 6, was paralyzed in lower extremities.  Inpatient at UNC Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill from 12/6/09 til 1/19/10.  Continue some informal PT but quite ambulatory without assistance and back to work 2 days per week now.  Had been told this was to be reported for statistics' sake.  Thank you.
