The Danger of the Zostavax Vaccine

As a Zostavax lawyer Memphis TN relies on, I want to make sure you have the facts about health problems linked to the popular vaccine.

Zostavax is a vaccine that was developed to prevent shingles in people aged 50 and older. It is manufactured by a company called Merck and has been widely used since 2006. But lately, the popular vaccine has been under fire. First, for allegedly causing the very condition it was designed to prevent: shingles, and in some cases, chickenpox. But, even worse, reports link Zostavax to vision loss, facial paralysis, heart failure, and even death.

Make no mistake: Merck has made lots of money off its Zostavax vaccine. Their profits reach into the billions. And yet, according to the National Vaccine Information Center, “…as of August 31, 2018, there have been 46,561 reports of shingles vaccine reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following shingles vaccinations made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), including 142 related deaths, 1,023 hospitalizations, and 766 related disabilities.” This is outrageous, and it’s why I’ve become a Zostavax lawyer Memphis TN can rely on.

I am offering a free legal consultation to anyone who received the Zostavax vaccination and developed shingles or another serious injury within six months. Read on to learn more.

You may be eligible for financial compensation for your Zostavax injury.

Hundreds of Zostavax patients have already filed lawsuits against Merck. They allege that Merck formulated the vaccine improperly, exposing them to an excessively powerful dose of the live virus. Instead of triggering the immune system to fight against shingles (a serious and painful disorder that often manifests as a rash with blisters), this too-powerful dose allegedly caused its recipients to develop hard-to-treat, recurring viruses instead.

My law firm, Darrell Castle & Associates, PLLC, specializes in personal injuries just like this one. If the Zostavax vaccine injured you or your loved one, it’s important you get an experienced lawyer. This is because the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 does not cover the shingles vaccine. In other words, an individual can sue the vaccine manufacturer directly for injuries associated with the vaccine. This can mean big wins in court, but only if you have a lawyer who knows how to navigate a complex case like this and win. And I am proud to say that I have a long track record of doing exactly that.

I am offering a free legal consultation to anyone injured by the Zostavax shingles vaccine.
