Hi All, 

Does anyone know if SIRVA as a result of a covid jab entitles you to the government compensation scheme. My mums lost pretty much all movement in her arm, can’t work, drive etc and is in excruciating pain all the time? Any help would be great 

thanks

    Really affected ability to move it, can’t raise her arm much more than 20/30% if raising it above your head is 100%

    Yeah been to doctor and physio had all the scans etc and it’s all pointed to and been diagnosed as SIRVA - on the government website it says the disability as a result of the jab has to be 60%… however do you measure the percentage of a disability caused 😂
