According to the just published CIDP Foundation Summer 2015 newsletter “…While its true that that the Flu vaccine can raise your GBS risk …”
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website states “… they may develop GBS in the days or weeks after getting a vaccination.”
The US Department of Health and Human Services created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) in recognition that, in part, Flu shots can cause GBS and related auto-immune disease. The CDC helped found the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund to provide compensation for those injured. The program is actively administered by the US Federal Court of Claims.
Those of us who already have broken autoimmune systems which know how to produce the GBS/CIDP antibodies, are more at risk than the general public for having a relapse of this terrible disease from a flu shot.
