vaccine-shot(NaturalHealth365) The world of vaccines just keeps getting more bizarre, and the reality of vaccine side effects more grim. Now, a major shingles vaccine manufacturer is admitting that their vaccine may actually cause the spread of shingles, in addition to being linked with numerous other disturbing vaccine dangers.

Shingles is an extremely painful blistering skin rash caused by the herpes zoster virus. It can also be linked with chickenpox, or the varicella virus, if one had it as a child.

Shingles vaccine comes with many unwanted side effects and health warnings

Merck, maker of the Zostavax shingles vaccine, lists the spread of shingles as one of the vaccine side effects of the drug. Its warning literature also lists a number of other groups who should not receive this vaccine due to vaccine dangers.

These are the exact words – within the Merck shingles vaccine insert:

“ZOSTAVAX is a live, attenuated varicella-zoster vaccine and administration may result in disseminated disease in individuals who are immunosuppressed or immunodeficient.”

Just to be clear: Anyone with a history of anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reaction to gelatin or neomycin should not receive it.  Individuals suffering from acute illness ranging from fever to tuberculosis should avoid it.  Pregnant women are not candidates for the vaccine, and all women are instructed to avoid becoming pregnant for at least three months after receiving the Zostavax shingles vaccine.

Immune compromised people are at high risk

Those who are suffering from immunosuppression or immunodeficiency are not candidates for the shingles vaccine.  Plus, we’re told that Zostavax should not be administered to anyone with a history of acquired or primary immunodeficiency states.

Patients with lymphoma, leukemia or other malignant neoplasms can be at high risk for complications.  In addition, those with AIDS or conditions of the lymphatic system, bone marrow, infection, human immunodeficiency viruses, and those on immunosuppressive therapy should avoid the shingles vaccine.

Studies confirm risk of receiving shingles from the shingles vaccine

Research has determined a number of adverse reactions and negative health conditions occurring in persons who received the Zostavax vaccine. While injection-site reactions and headaches were the most common, the ZEST study showed some persons experiencing ongoing rashes, including the Herpes zoster virus – the virus associated with shingles!

The presence of varicella-like rashes was also detected in some vaccine recipients – this is the virus associated with chickenpox. Apparently, the Merck shingles vaccine, created to help people avoid getting shingles, just might give you shingles – and you’re at risk for chickenpox as well.

Vitamin C: A natural remedy for shingles

The good news is that shingles can be effectively treated with vitamin C.  Vitamin C is a unique antiviral agent that can totally eradicate the shingles virus and other viruses from the body when taken in high doses.

Vitamin C accomplishes this by augmenting and supporting the immune system. While large doses are key, its antioxidant properties are extremely effective in deactivating any virus.  Vitamin C studies conducted by Frederick Klenner, MD found that shingles patients who received a 3,000 mg injection of vitamin C reported relief from their painful symptoms within just two hours.

Vitamin C can also be taken orally for shingles relief, but aggressive dosing is required.  Of course, if you’re suffering with any serious health problem – seek the help of a trusted, integrative healthcare provider for best results.

    I have shingles and seeing the doctor did nothing. However, vitamin C is very helpful. The pain and itching is just about gone. Everything is healing and I couldn’t be more relieved.

  • Autumn Tucci

    I had the shingles vaccine and still got a case of shingles. The doctor said lucky I got vaccinated or the shingles would have been worst. I wonder if that is true, since it was only days after the vaccination that I became infected with the virus.

      He fed you a line of nonsense.

  • Ronda Forman

    I am in a retirement community and just about everyone around me got the shingles vaccine. There were quite a few cases of shingles in this community. This also occurred among those that were vaccinated.

    I decided not to get vaccinated and no one could understand why. Most of the feedback was-even if you get shingles it will be mild if you get vaccinated.

    What can be done for people harmed by the vaccine?

    • Jody

      I had the “ongoing” attacks of a shingles/chickenpox virus after
      receiving the Zostavax. After more than 2 years, I found that
      elderberry syrup (sambucus syrup) is effective at reducing the
      recurrences. Elderberry syrup is a natural antiviral with no side
      effects. Now, if I start to have a recurrence, I immediately take
      elderberry syrup for at least a week.
      Hope this information is helpful to you

    Is there any helpful information for persons that may have been harmed by the Shingles vaccine. Can damage be reversed?

      Milk Thistle, Olive Leaf Tincture, Organic Wild Oregano Oil, Elderberry
      Syrup. All Good!

  • Truth4All

    I have found boosting up the immune system with Milk Thistle, Olive Leaf tincture, Organic Oregano Oil, Elderberry Syrup…. all help with things like shingles…. and help keep the immune system strong! The insane medical professionals are WORTHLESS when it comes to treating this.
    Did you know that you can give the virus to someone who has not had the Chicken Pox? After you’ve had the vaccine, you are supposed to avoid contact, just the same with the Measles and all the rest!!!.. You shed the virus!!!!!!!!!

  • Daisy

    I am looking after a patient of 87 years and she has got shingles and her son wants her to have the vaccine how crazy is that. Could anyone advise me please.

  • Trudy Davidorf

    People with a good immune system have come down with shingles. More young people are getting this condition. At the same time more people are getting vaccinated. This says something about the vaccine causing the upturn in cases.

  • AutismDadd

    Now we know why we have so many cases of shingle, its vaccine caused. Thanks MERCK (synonymous with consumer death)
