Heliyon. 2021 Nov; 7(11):e08442.
PMID: 34901499.


Chronic shoulder pain occurs rarely after a vaccination and is hypothesized to arise from the effects of unintentional vaccine injection into the subacromial bursa, rotator cuff, capsule or underlying bone. The avascular nature of the rotator cuff, as well as unknown genetic and environmental factors, may predispose to the persistence of pain and disability, referred to as vaccination-related shoulder dysfunction and shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA).
