Conclusion

Prolonged shoulder pain and restricted movement following vaccine administration should prompt clinicians to rule out SIRVA as a culprit. It is imperative when administering vaccines to remain within the deltoid muscle and avoid over-penetration into the rotator cuff tendons as this may lead to SIRVA. Lastly, SIRVA should be considered as a plausible cause when faced with isolated teres minor tendon pathology in the appropriate clinical setting.
