The herpes zoster virus that causes shingles in adults also causes chickenpox in children. After someone has chickenpox, the virus lays dormant in the individual’s nervous system. If that virus returns later in life, the person can develop shingles. In 2006, a vaccine was developed to prevent cases of Shingles. The Shingles vaccine has been administered since then to adults in their 50s and older. Ironically, instead of protecting people from developing shingles, that vaccine actually triggered severe cases of shingles in many of the individuals who received it.
Some of the adverse reactions people have experienced after receiving the shingles vaccine include:
- Viral infections
- Disseminated encephalomyelitis
- Inflammation of brain and spinal cord
- Cardiovascular injury
- Joint pain
- Muscle pain
- Facial paralysis
- Vision or hearing loss
- Lymph node disease
