Dr. Mikolaj Raszek discussed a large study that highlighted reports of varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which causes herpes zoster (HZ, synonym: shingles), after COVID-19 inoculation.
“Shingles can be observed post-vax, COVID-19 vaccines as well, and this is actually a very well established symptom already,” Raszek said.
“In one recent publication that involved more than one million individuals, so it was a very large study. They showed that the likelihood of developing shingles post-vaccine is twice as high,” he added.
“In a vaccinated population, shingles was occurring about 0.2% of the population as opposed to 0.1% of the population that was unvaccinated,” Raszek explained.
