Shingles Activation Associated With COVID Jab

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola  Fact Checked January 04, 2023


According to a recent case study, persistent post-jab shingles was associated with the
presence of COVID jab spike protein in the affected skin. The researchers speculate that
the COVID jab may induce persistent shingles reactivation by perturbing the immune

Another study details the cases of six patients with autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic
diseases who developed shingles shortly after their Pfizer jabs. None of the healthy
controls developed shingles post-jab

A systematic review also concluded that the COVID jab increases the risk of shingles
reactivation if you’ve had it before or have known risk factors for it

The COVID shots suppress your innate immune system by inhibiting the type-1 interferon
pathway, which is the first-stage response to all viral infections. Type-1 interferon also
keeps latent viruses in check, so if your interferon pathway is suppressed, latent viruses
can start to emerge

Type 1 interferon is suppressed by the jab because it responds to viral RNA, and viral
RNA is not present in the COVID shot. The RNA is modified to look like human RNA, so
the interferon pathway is not triggered
