Have you seen a marked Increased Genital herpes outbreaks since the Pfizer Biontec Covid VaccineVaccine

Recommended Posts

Since having my 2 doses of the Pfizer Biontec Vaccine I have gone from 2 outbreaks a year treated with acyclovir to 2 outbreaks a month. 800mg of Acyclovir 4 times a day for a week doesn’t work. A therapeutic does of 800mg a day hasn’t reduced the outbreaks and this has been since April 2021.

I have read some hypothesis that the vaccine may interfere with immune receptors and want to see if there is a trend. It’s hard to gather data about this because us Herpes sufferers are private. But wondered if any of you have had the same experience? If so did you report this as an adverse reaction and have you found a way to cope?

My relationship is suffering and I am in frequent pain… I want to make sure others don’t suffer..

finally have you caught covid? So far I haven’t ..wondered if there was a link there too?

I want to understand what is going on and would love to hear from you 🙏

I am so sorry that you have been experiencing such pain. 😞 

There is hope! You will get through this and we are here to support you.

Since the vaccine and COVID are so new, the medical field is still trying to piece everything together and how it interconnects with peoples' already-existent health conditions. Furthermore, there aren't too too many studies out there about HSV since the majority of the world has it (but I think this makes it all the more reason to conduct research on it, since so many people have it!).

I am going to call the University of Washington Virology Clinic this week and ask them about this issue, and see what information they can offer regarding COVID and HSV outbreaks.

I'm so sorry your relationship is suffering. It is NOT your fault. You need love and acceptance right now, not judgement and shame and loneliness. Maybe, express this to your partner and perhaps it could lead to a positive discussion and support. 🙂 

Stay strong! 

Sending prayers your way!

Hi, my first ever OB was in May 2021 and no OB until my second shot in October. And then another OB in mid December. Considering my primary outbreak was in May and managed to go 5 months without an OB, and suddenly 2 OB's after my booster. It does appear to affect HSV and outbreaks. I hope I will make it past January and beyond without an OB, hopefully the body just needs to adjust and OB's subside.

Take care
