Herpes infections may be a side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine, experts have revealed.

Scientists in Israel identified six cases in a new study of patients developing a skin rash known as herpes zoster after receiving the Pfizer vaccine, according to a study in the Rheumatology journal.

Herpes zoster starts off as a small, itchy skin rash, but if left untreated, it could cause nerve damage and pain, the Jerusalem Post reported.


This can include a prolonged burning sensation on the skin even after the rash disappears.

Researchers from Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center and Carmel Medical Center in Haifa found those with autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases had a higher risk of developing the herpes infection.

Out of 491 patients, six people or 1.2 percent experienced the infection, researchers said.

The six patients all have mild cases of autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases and were young, though the infection is generally more common in those over the age of 50.

"That is why we reported on it," Dr. Victoria Furer, the lead author, told the outlet.

Five of them developed herpes zoster after the first dose and the sixth got it after the second.

But it’s still unclear whether the vaccine caused the cases of herpes zoster.

"We cannot say the vaccine is the cause at this point," Furer told the outlet. "We can say it might be a trigger in some patients."

Furer said further research is necessary and one implication could be that patients with autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases be encouraged to get vaccinated against herpes zoster before getting their COVID-19 shot.

"We should not scare people," she told the Jerusalem Post. "The overall message is to get vaccinated. It is just important to be aware."
Sounds like as good an excuse as any...Would you believe your hubs if He told you the vaccine's where he got it? R44de6bde384593be8aeac644385e99fa.jpeg

The whole thing is screwy. Who knows what the hell this thing is but it isn't a vaccine. Its a shot. Very different. They haven't isolated the rona yet so its impossible to have a vaccine. Operation warp speed is president Trump's one mistake.

I've known people who took the VidVax and it triggered shingles. Bad cases of it, too.

It's not the herpes most think about. Its shingles.

Got my shingles shot at the VA four or five years ago.

Wife made me get mine a few years ago. Now she's telling me there's an updated one for us old folks.

She forgets but when I'm asked what I'm allergic to the quick answer is pain and needles.
I heard that too.
I never had chickenpox as a kid, so I probably didn't need the first one.
But, the VA likes to offer this type of thing, such pneomonia shots, and I pretty much just do it.
Except flu shots.

You may have had chicken pox and not even known it unless you’ve had your blood tested there’s no way to know. People test positive but never break out. Asymptotic response to chicken pox virus.
