Conclusion

Prolonged shoulder pain occurring acutely after vaccination should prompt physicians to incorporate SIRVA in their differential of possible causes. In addition, vaccine administrators in healthcare facilities nationwide should be educated on the potential risks (physical and economic) of over-penetration associated with the current CDC's needle length recommendations.
