ZOSTAVAX® (Zoster Vaccine Live) - every ingredient is causing allergies

Every single listed ingredient causes problems. How many diseases are being caused by the body's natural immune response to a vaccine ingredient?

ZOSTAVAX is a live attenuated virus vaccine indicated for prevention of herpes zoster (shingles) in individuals 50 years of age and older.

attenuated varicella-zoster virus Contraindications and precautions are similar for all varicella-containing vaccines. Persons with a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) to a vaccine component or following a prior dose of vaccine should not receive varicella vaccine.
bovine calf serum
Most children with beef allergy are also allergic to cow's milk and should avoid the consumption of dairy products. Sensitization to bovine serum albumin is a marker of cow's milk allergy in children with beef allergy. -

Findings in epidemiology and animal experimentation suggest that autoimmunity in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) may be triggered by dietary cow-milk protein, particularly bovine serum albumin (BSA).
hydrolyzed porcine gelatin All gelatin contained in vaccines is porcine in origin. Studies in Japan confirmed the findings of Kelso and colleagues that severe allergic reactions to MMR vaccine were associated with the presence of antibodies in the blood directed against gelatin. Although the incidence of anaphylaxis to gelatin is extremely low (about one case per 2 million doses), gelatin is the most common identifiable cause of severe allergic reactions to vaccines. -
monosodium L-glutamate The epidemiological studies done in the United States in the 1970s suggest that 25% to 30% of the population was intolerant of monosodium glutamate at levels then found in food. Considering the expanded use of monosodium glutamate and other MSG-containing food additives since that time, we conservatively estimate that approximately 40% of the U.S. population presently react adversely to MSG.

Scleroderma/systemic sclerosis. An autoimmune disease characterized by abnormal growth of connective tissue in the skin and blood vessels. In more severe forms, connective tissue can build up in the kidneys, lungs, heart, and gastrointestinal tract, leading in some cases to organ failure. -

a child with systemic sclerosis may also develop problems with internal organs (such as the kidneys, heart, lungs and gastrointestinal tract). Children with systemic sclerosis have more widespread skin changes that can result in limited joint movement. -
Neomycin Before using this product, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to neomycin, bacitracin, or polymyxin; or to aminoglycoside antibiotics (e.g., gentamicin, tobramycin); or if you have any other allergies.
potassium chloride Allergic reactions to potassium chloride are rare but can be potentially deadly.
potassium phosphate monobasic You should not be given Potassium Dihydrogen Phosphate Concentrated Injection if you are allergic to potassium phosphate or have increased sensitivity to potassium.
sodium chloride Here, we present a 37-year-old woman who developed an anaphylactic reaction to normal saline infusion during evaluation for her acute abdominal pain -
sodium phosphate dibasic You should not be given Sterile Potassium Phosphate Solution if: • you are allergic (hypersensitive) to potassium or phosphate or any of the other ingredients of this medicine, listed in section 6 of this leaflet. • you have too much phosphat

Do not use this medicine if you have had an allergic reaction to sodium phosphate dibasic or sodium phosphate monobasic. Source: Sodium phosphate dibasic/sodium phosphate monobasic  University of Maryland Medical Center
sucrose symptoms of sucrose intolerance usually improve as the affected child ages. Disaccharide intolerance I is inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait. -

Allergic reactions from the ingestion or intravenous injection of cane sugar (sucrose).
