## Can a Flu Shot Cause Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS)? Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is a rare but serious autoimmune condition that affects the peripheral nerves. It is characterized by weakness, numbness, and tingling sensations in the limbs, which can rapidly progress and lead to paralysis in severe cases. Although the exact cause of GBS is unknown, it is believed to occur as a result of the body's immune system mistakenly attacking its own nerves. While GBS can occur following various viral infections, it has also been associated with certain vaccines, including the flu shot. It is important to note that the occurrence of GBS after a flu shot is rare, with a frequency of approximately one to two cases per million doses administered. GBS developing after a flu shot has been investigated extensively, and many studies have established a causal relationship between GBS and the flu shot. Certain studies have reported an increased risk of developing GBS in the weeks following a flu vaccine. Today, the [National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)]( recognizes a causal connection between the flu shot and GBS if the symptoms of GBS started between 3 and 42 days after a flu shot. Despite this potential risk, the benefit of receiving a flu shot to protect against the influenza virus, especially during flu season, far outweighs the rare chance of developing GBS after a flu shot.
## What are the Symptoms of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS)? GBS symptoms can range in severity, with very mild cases developing brief weakness in a persons extremities to more devastating cases developing paralysis through ones body - in some cases leaving the person unable to walk, balance or breathe independently. The rehabilitation process for GBS can be intense, and after recovery, some people may continue to have some degree of weakness.
