Vaccination Error Leads to $12.6 Million Jury Verdict

A South Florida teen has been awarded $12.6 million in a jury verdict after the teen lost all four limbs due to a vaccination error 13 years ago. The medical malpractice lawsuit was filed against the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.
In October 1998, the child’s mother, Queen Seriah Azulla Dabrio, took her to the medical school’s pediatric unit for a checkup. A medical assistant injected her with a special vaccination designed to protect against infection for people without spleens.
