Zostavax Injury Lawyer

Merck’s Zostavax is a shingles vaccine for people age 50 and older. According to The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), Merck’s product is the only live virus shingle vaccine currently available. The CDC recommends that adults 60 and older receive a dose of the vaccine.

The vaccine contains live varicella zoster virus – the chickenpox virus that also causes shingles. Once a person has had chickenpox, the virus remains dormant in their body. Later in life, if the immune system becomes weakened, the virus can reactivate to cause shingles. Zostavax, according to Merck, contains a “weakened” or “attenuated” form of the virus, which stimulates the immune system in an effort to keep the virus dormant and prevent shingles.

People who say the Zostavax vaccine injured them are filing lawsuits. Lawsuits say vaccine maker Merck failed to warn the vaccine could cause side effects.

We are accepting Zostavax intakes to determine whether or not you have a claim for serious injury,
