Zostovax Lawsuit Information

Zostavax Mass Tort Overview

The Zostavax mass tort is a significant legal matter involving the shingles vaccine, Zostavax, manufactured by Merck & Co Inc. Since its inception, this multidistrict litigation (MDL) has gathered momentum, with 900 active cases as of August 2023. These cases revolve around allegations that Zostavax, rather than preventing shingles as intended, actually caused shingles and related injuries in patients. This complex legal battle has seen various developments, including an appeal against a ruling that favored Merck, based on the difficulty in proving that the vaccine, instead of a reactivated wild virus, caused the shingles. With the first trials commencing in January 2022, the outcomes of these cases are pivotal in shaping the landscape of pharmaceutical liability and patient safety.

Injuries and Adverse Effects from Zostavax

Zostavax was designed to protect against shingles, a painful condition caused by the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus. However, the vaccine has been associated with a range of serious adverse effects. In the past two years, over 1,000 adverse event reports related to Zostavax, including 36 deaths, have been filed with the FDA. Reported injuries include severe cases of shingles, cardiovascular issues, joint and muscle pain, rashes, pneumonia, vision and hearing loss, facial paralysis, brain inflammation (encephalitis), and in tragic instances, death. These alarming reports highlight the critical need for accountability and justice for those affected by the vaccine.
