Miami Zostavax vaccine injury attorney David H. Charlip (https://charliplawgroup.com/practice-areas/personal-injury/products-liability/zostavax-vaccine-injuries/) releases a new article explaining the problems associated with the Zostavax vaccine. The lawyer mentions that since 2006, the FDA has added warnings to Zostavax prescribing as a result of reports of health problems. The FDA requires an update because the vaccine was found to cause shingles in some people.
“The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has also reported that between 1990 and September 1, 2015, there were 1,141 serious adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System in connection with the shingles vaccine. Over 33 percent of those occurred in seniors 65-75 years old. In a total of 90 of those events, the patients reportedly died,” says the Miami Zostavax vaccine injury attorney.
According to the lawyer, FDA required that a second warning about Zostavax be added in February 2016. This warning should include a description of an eye condition called necrotizing retinitis. Multiple medical journals also reported that Zostavax can cause keratitis, which is a condition that can lead to permanent blindness.
Attorney David Charlip says that Zostavax has been linked to severe side effects, including blindness, painful rashes, and chickenpox. Anyone who has had adverse reactions to the Zostavax vaccine should seek immediate medical attention. A skilled Zostavax vaccine injury lawyer can also be very helpful if a lawsuit is required.
In the article, attorney Charlip adds, “Zostavax lawsuits have been filed across the country alleging that the Zostavax caused serious side effects, including the development of shingles and chicken pox. Plaintiffs allege that they were never warned about the potential risks associated with the vaccine and that they may have elected not to have the vaccine if they did know they may develop these side effects. Plaintiffs claim that Merck knew of these serious risks but did not provide adequate warnings.”
Lastly, the personal injury attorney emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when it comes to matters such as filing an injury claim after receiving a Zostavax vaccine. An experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help the victim receive the compensation they deserve.
