Zostavax vaccine lawsuit TN: We must stand up to Big Pharma

As a lawyer leading the Zostavax vaccine lawsuit TN residents rely on, I want you to know that you are not alone in your Zostavax injury.

In fact, hundreds of people are suing Merck, the company that manufactures the popular shingles vaccine. Claimants are accusing the Zostavax shot of causing their shingles instead of preventing them. Even worse, other alleged injuries include chickenpox, facial paralysis, vision loss, heart failure, and death.

Everything you need to know about the Zostavax lawsuit

Shingles is a serious and painful disorder that often manifests as a rash with blisters. Merck developed Zostavax to prevent shingles in adults 50 years and older. The vaccine contains a dose of the live shingles virus, herpes zoster. While using live viruses in vaccines is not uncommon, victims allege that Merck formulated the vaccine improperly. They claim that Merck exposed them to an excessively-powerful dose of the virus. Instead of triggering the immune system to fight against shingles, this too-powerful dose caused its recipients to develop hard-to-treat, recurring viruses instead.

In some cases, reports link serious health problems to the widely-used vaccine. These include vision loss, facial paralysis, heart failure, and even death. This is why my firm, Darrell Castle & Associates, PLLC, is spearheading the Zostavax vaccine lawsuit TN residents can count on for justice.

If you have been injured by the Zostavax vaccine, call us right away.

Just like so many other Big Pharma companies, Merck has made billions off of Zostavax since 2006. They marketed it as a safe and effective way to prevent shingles. 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.”

This is why I am offering a free legal consultation to anyone who developed shingles, facial paralysis, or heart problems after receiving a Zostavax vaccination.
