According to WKYT, the problems originated with Location Vaccination, a company that sends out staff to vaccinate people at local businesses. That company has since stopped vaccinating, so there are no further risks.
It looks like the problem is with how these shots were given, meaning injection safety and not a reaction to the vaccine itself. The Kentucky Department for Public Health believes the problems stem from improper storage and handling of the vaccines.
People who got a hepA, TDaP, pneumococcal, or seasonal flu shot from Location Vaccination between September 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018 should be alert. Reactions can happen up to 8 weeks after getting the vaccination.
The Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH) sent out a statewide health alert asking for information about anyone experiencing a serious reaction to vaccinations given between those dates.

Filing a vaccine claim is a complicated and adversarial process. Vaccine Cases are NOT typical personal injury cases. Your vaccine lawyer needs to be a member Court of Federal Claims Bar and should be highly experienced in litigating vaccine injury cases before the Vaccine Court.
