Zostavax Lawsuit

Zostavax is a vaccine designed to prevent shingles, an extremely painful rash similar to chickenpox. Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus and is characterized by a painful skin rash. The initial disease starts as a burning or tingling pain that starts on one side of the body. This is followed after a few days with a rash that may even blister and take up to 30 days to go away.

After approval, the FDA began receiving reports that Americans were suffering complications as a result of the Zostavax Shingles Vaccine. Merck designed the drug to contain a “live form of the virus” in a weakened state that is to keep the virus dormant by stimulating the immune system. Some studies have suggested the “live form” of the virus contained in the Zostavax drug is too potent for some groups of people and is causing the outbreak of the shingles disease.
