Many People Report Serious Side Effects From Zostavax
According to Mayo Clinic, Zostavax is a live vaccine. This means it contains a weakened live virus. When it is given as a single injection in the upper arm, the live virus enters the blood. This shingles vaccine has approval for adults 50+. The sometimes-weakened immune system in this age group could play a role in developing shingles or chickenpox from the shot.
Since the approval of Zostavax in 2006, Merck has added two key warnings to the shingles vaccine packaging, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This includes that, in addition to chickenpox, the shingles vaccine could actually cause patients to develop the shingles virus and suffer the illness.
The second change was an added warning to make doctors and their patients aware that the Zostavax vaccine could cause “Eye Disorders: necrotizing retinitis.”
