The Potential Side Effects of Zostavax

Zostavax is recommended for patients who are over the age of 50. Shingles occurs when the chickenpox virus becomes reactivated. Shingles can cause painful blisters to develop on the body. Zostavax has a weakened version of the virus. It helps activate the immune system so that the body can build up an immunity.

This vaccine is not 100 percent effective. In fact, it only works about half of the time. It lasts a maximum of six years. This vaccine does not work well for people who are immunocompromised. Many injuries can result, including Shingles and Chickenpox.

The FDA has reported that Zostavax can cause the following side effects.

  • Chickenpox
  • Shingles
  • Joint pain
  • Nausea
  • Eye disorders

Is Merck Involved in Any Other Lawsuit?

Merck is the company that has produced the vaccine. It is currently involved in a lawsuit for the Measles, Mumps and Rubella shot. They have been accused of manipulating data in order to promote the vaccine. The documents stated that the vaccine is less than 95 percent effective. They also stated that Merck had tampered with the evidence. Furthermore, people allege that the mumps outbreaks that occurred in 2006 and 2009 were due to an ineffective vaccine.

What Do the Zostovax Lawsuits Say?

The lawsuits allege that serious side effects can result from getting the Zostavax shot, including death. People have also stated that they were not warned about the side effects of the shot.

Who Can File a Lawsuit?
