Zostavax – Shingles
Shingles is a rash on the side of the face or body, usually affecting persons over 50. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Zostavax as a shingles vaccine in 2006.
Possible Injuries – Shingles and others
Yes, Shingles is one of the side effects of Zostavax, even though it was approved to treat shingles. Other injuries alleged include: Autoimmune disorders, including Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, Meniere’s Disease; Bell’s Palsy (facial paralysis); Cardiovascular event; Congestive heart failure; Death; Hearing loss; Herpetic Neuralgia (disorder in the nerves); Myelitis (spinal cord inflammation); Pneumonia; Postherpetic neuralgia, or PHN (pain continuing after shingles blister subside); Serious neurological diseases or disorders, including brain inflammation (encephalitis); Stroke; Vasculitis; and Vision problems, including blindness, eye infections, retinal damage, acute retinal necrosis.
Dangerous drugs and dangerous medical devices can injure up to hundreds or even thousands of individuals, each of whom may be entitled to compensation. A significant step in obtaining compensation for each individual occurs when the courts decide to group the cases under the supervision of a single judge who oversees investigation and mediation of the cases. Even though hundreds of Zostavax cases are still filed in separate state courts, those cases and new cases are being transferred to the supervision of a single judge.
