What is Zostavax?

Zostavax is a shingles vaccine for patients 50 years and older. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once you have had chickenpox, the virus can stay in your nervous system for many years. For reasons that are not fully understood, the virus may become active again and give you shingles. Age and problems with the immune system may increase your chances of getting shingles.

Zostavax uses a weakened form of the herpes zoster virus in order to activate the immune system. The body builds immunity after fighting the weakened version of the virus. Zostavax is the only shingles vaccine currently sold in the U.S.
 

What is Happening with Zostavax?

Recent studies have shown that Zostavax may actually be causing shingles, the virus it is supposed to prevent, and the FDA recently approved a label change to include a shingles warning. Studies have also shown the vaccine has been shown to work in only 50% of patients.
