Adverse skin reactions to vaccines

Most adverse skin events associated with vaccines are caused by a normal inflammatory response to a foreign substance. I have always been suspicious about my temporal relastionship of getting the Zostavax vaccination and getting autoimmune disease(lupus(systemic and cutaneous) Sjogren’s Syndrome). What is chickenpox? ZOSTAVAX is contraindicated in: persons with a history of anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reaction to gelatin, neomycin, or any other component of the vaccine; persons with a history of primary or acquired immunodeficiencies; persons on immunosuppressive therapy; pregnant women or women of childbearing age. Bovine protein, phenol Pain, soreness, tenderness, swelling, induration, headache, erythema, asthenia, fatigue, myalgia, chills, upper respiratory infection, chest pain, depression, tremors, stiffness, sweating. Immunosuppression or immunodeficiency, including a history of primary or acquired immunodeficiency states (eg, leukemia, lymphoma or other malignant neoplasms affecting bone marrow or lymphatic system, AIDS or other clinical manifestations of infection with HIV); patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy; women who are pregnant or may become pregnant during or within 3 months of treatment; history of anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reaction to gelatin, neomycin (excluding contact dermatitis to neomycin), or any component of the vaccine.

If you are thinking about getting the shingles vaccine, or if your physician has recommended it, you may be wondering about the shingles vaccine side effects. There are currently two HPV vaccines on the market, but if there was any regard for sound scientific evidence, neither would be promoted as heavily as they are. By the time age 60 rolls around, everyone knows at least several people who’ve suffered a painful attack of shingles, aka herpes zoster, and its severe complication called postherpetic neuralgia. This study is particularly significant because the vast majority of reports came from physicians, pharmacists, and other health care providers. The information sheets on this page provide details on reaction rates of selected vaccines – whether single antigen or combined in a single product. (NaturalHealth365) As we witness the ever growing agenda for maintaining and increasing immunizations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works to create what it calls “lasting, effective immunization delivery systems.” Yet, the CDC also admits – on the same area of its website – that there is a long list of adverse, sometimes deadly, reactions to vaccines.

Varicella (commonly known as chickenpox) is a common childhood disease that causes fever, skin rash, and a breakout of fluid-filled blisters on the skin. GSK has announced the publication of detailed results from a randomized phase III study (ZOE-70) of its investigational shingles vaccine, Shingrix, showing 90% efficacy in adults aged 70 years and older that is maintained for at least four years. In repsonse to an article in MedPage Today, May 30, 2006 Fast Rollout of Shingles Vaccine Planned After FDA’s OKThe FDA approval of Merck’s shingles vaccine (Zostavax) to counteract the effects of mass use of Merck’s chicken pox vaccine will help Merck recover financially from the loss of Vioxx revenues. The Shingles Prevention Study and the AE Monitoring Sub-study passively monitored about 3,300 individuals who received the shingles vaccine and a similar number who received a placebo for a period of five years. ZOSTAVAX is contraindicated in: persons with a history of anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reaction to gelatin, neomycin, or any other component of the vaccine; persons with a history of primary or acquired immunodeficiencies; persons on immunosuppressive therapy; pregnant women or women of childbearing age. Getting chickenpox vaccine is much safer than getting the disease.

Anyone who gives or receives a licensed vaccine in the U.S. It is the height of hubris and naiveity to believe that one can keep pouring in all of these foreign substances into a his/her body (especially when one is directly injecting passed the body’s natural defense shields) without some unintended residual effects or consequences. If you feel unwell or have concerns about a side effect after having the HPV vaccine, seek medical advice. Every year the Centers for Disease Control receives about 30,000 reports of vaccine reactions. Varicella, more commonly known as chickenpox, is caused by the human alpha herpesvirus varicella zoster virus (VZV). According to medical information, Chickenpox is a viral infection in which a person develops extremely itchy blisters all over the body.

This admission came after a review of more than 1,000 vaccine studies, which was intended to assess the scientific evidence in the medical literature about  specific adverse events associated with eight vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella (MMR); varicella (chickenpox); influenza; hepatitis A; hepatitis B; HPV; diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis (DtaP); and meningococcal.
