Zostavax is a shingles vaccine manufactured by Merck that has been reported to cause the very virus it is supposed to prevent. Many patients have contracted shingles after receiving the vaccine, which in some cases, can lead to chronic complications.
Serious side effects associated with Zostavax include:
- Vision Loss
- Hearing Loss
- Brain Damage
- Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN)
- Bell’s Palsy
- Congestive heart failure
- Autoimmune disorders (such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, Meniere’s Disease, and others)
- Herpetic Neuralgia
- Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
Patients claim that because complaints have been submitted to the FDA since the drug’s introduction in 2006, Merck knew about the dangers and neglected to warn patients and medical providers.
Lawsuits against Merck have already been filed alleging that the drug causes serious side effects, of which Merck failed to warn patients, and that the company intentionally misrepresented the safety of the vaccine.
