Multiple studies suggest COVID-19 vaccines may induce persistent shingles reactivation by interfering with the immune system.
Story at a glance:
- According to a recent case study, persistent post-jab shingles were associated with the presence of COVID-19 jab spike protein in the affected skin. The researchers speculate that the COVID-19 jab may induce persistent shingles reactivation by perturbing the immune system.
- 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-19 jab increases the risk of shingles reactivation if you’ve had it before or have known risk factors for it.
- The COVID-19 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-19 shot. The RNA is modified to look like human RNA, so the interferon pathway is not triggered.
According to a recent case study published in the Journal of Cutaneous Immunology and Allergy, persistent post-jab shingles, aka herpes zoster, an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, was associated with the presence of COVID-19 jab spike protein in the affected skin.
As explained by the authors:
“Since the campaign of vaccination against COVID-19 was started, a wide variety of cutaneous adverse effects after vaccination has been documented worldwide.
“Varicella zoster virus (VZV) reactivation was reportedly the most frequent cutaneous reaction in men after administration of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, especially BNT162b2.
“A patient, who had persistent skin lesions after BNT162b2 vaccination for … over 3 months, was investigated for VZV virus and any involvement of vaccine-derived spike protein. …
“Strikingly, the vaccine-encoded spike protein of the COVID-19 virus was expressed in the vesicular keratinocytes and endothelial cells in the dermis.”
The researchers speculate that the COVID-19 jab may induce persistent shingles reactivation by “perturbing the immune system.”
How your immune system is perturbed by the COVID-19 shots is the topic of MIT researcher Stephanie Seneff’s paper “Innate Immune Suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA Vaccinations: The Role of G-quadruplexes, Exosomes and MicroRNAs,” co-written with Drs. Peter McCullough, Greg Nigh and Anthony Kyriakopoulos…
