If you suffered a serious side effect from the Zostavax (shingles) vaccine, you may have a valid legal claim against the pharmaceutical manufacturer, Merck. The Zostavax vaccine has been linked to adverse side effects such as, causing and/or failing to prevent shingles, auto-immune disease, blindness, Encephalitis, and the risk of stroke.
We are working with a law firm that is currently filing lawsuits against the pharmaceutical company responsible for the manufacturing, marketing, and sale of the Zostavax (shingles) vaccination. The attorneys at My Vaccine Lawyer are currently representing clients across the country who have suffered injury or serious side effects from the shingles Zostavax vaccine.
In 2006, the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") approved Zostavax, the only shingles vaccine approved for patients over the age of 50. However, Zostavax, which contains a live attenuated varicella-zoster virus contains a 'weakened' form of the chickenpox virus, which can cause serious adverse reactions, including the very virus it intended to prevent - shingles. That’s right, the vaccine that is marketed to prevent seniors from contracting this excruciating virus is found to actually cause shingles in some individuals. Yet, it wasn’t until 2014 that shingles was added as a side effect.
Merck now faces several lawsuits from consumers who allege that it produced and sold an unreasonably dangerous vaccine and although it knew of the defective nature of its Zostavax vaccine, continued to manufacture, market and sell its product without providing adequate warnings - all at the expense of the public health and safety.
