Covid-19 Vaccine Effects on HSV2

Recommended Posts

This is a topic I'd like to hear about....  For those of you that got the vaccine a couple years ago, did you notice a

change in how often you had an outbreak? I heard on the other H forum about someone saying it's constant now that they

got the vaccine... One outbreak after another... 

I have yet to get the vaccine (and don't plan to) but was curious on this topic regardless...

It's a smart question considering how vaccines can mess with our immune system in unexpected ways.

This NIH article "COVID-19 infection and vaccines: potential triggers of Herpesviridae reactivation" explains that vaccines, while well-tested, can cause responses beyond their intended targets, which might affect conditions like HSV2. So, your concern is valid.

Remember, vaccines affect people differently. Some say their HSV2 outbreaks increased after the vaccine, others say they saw no change, and some even noticed a decrease.

As for your choice not to get the vaccine, that's a personal decision and it's important to make choices that align with your comfort level and health considerations.

Keep in mind that everyone's body reacts uniquely, so staying open to various possibilities is a good call. Thanks for the question!
