Do We Need a Shingles Vaccine?

It never ceases to amaze me how many vaccines there are! Everything is an epidemic or is a potential epidemic! For instance, if you had the chicken pox when you were a child, you have a life-long immunity, right? Well, that's what I always thought!

Yet, we are being told that if you have chicken pox as a child you're in more danger of getting shingles as an older person (60's and higher). Here's an article I read in Remedy magazine:

The chicken pox virus is still in your body. It can resurface as Shingles, a painful, blistering rash. The Shingles rash usually lasts up to 30 days, and for most the pain lessens as the rash heals. But some people who develop Shingles experience long-term pain that can last for months, even years.

But who's telling us this? Merck! This is their ad!! After they scare you with this "information", they then give you a "solution." It's a vaccine called Zostavax. No one can tell me this is a coincidence. It's all about their bottom line.

Soon I'll write a review on a video I watched regarding vaccines. The "bottom line" was discussed in length. Don't kid yourself. They're not that concerned about your health. It's about control and money.

  1. I haven't been "blogging" in some time and thought I'd check out what I've been missing. I enjoy your blogs. It's amazing to me how many people are duped into believing lies on vaccines. In fact there are more doctors now against vaccines and over vaccinating then ever before. One of the toughest jobs a mom has is getting around a system who's motives aren't that admirable. Continue to keep your children covered by the blood of Jesus, continuing the good fight- exercising your faith and relying on His strength in all things. In Jesus,Vicky
