Lupus is an autoimmune disorder. This means that the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues by mistake. This can damage your joints, skin, blood vessels and organs. There are many kinds of lupus. The most common type, systemic lupus erythematosus, affects many parts of the body. Discoid lupus causes a rash that doesn’t go away. Subacute cutaneous lupus causes sores after being out in the sun. Another type can be caused by medication. Neonatal lupus, which is rare, affects newborns.

Which vaccines cause lupus?

  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Hepatitis A (HAV) vaccines
  • Hepatitis B (HBV) vaccines
  • HPV vaccine (Gardasil)
  • Influenza (TIV, LAIV)
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)

    This is a little helpful but I need concrete affirmation that Gardasil can cause Lupus. I had the doctor give my daughter this vaccine to try and protect her from one disease only to cause another. She now has Lupus and will suffer the rest of her life with this, and to think that if I had known what the side effects might be I would not have had her vaccinated in the first place. This is a travesty for parents.

      I had the same problem with shingles vaccine- got drug induced lupus. Found a holistic physician in St Augustine, Fl, named John Garvey who tested and treated me with frequency specific electro acupuncture and holistic remedies and herbal shock treatments for 2 months and all my labs came back negative for lupus. Feel free to contact me for further info. All my joint pain, redness and swelling gone after the 3 day treatments!

    • my 17 year old daughter had her last in the series of gardasil shots on march 15th 2 weeks later her lymph nodes in her entire body swelled up, took her to the doctor, today she was diagnosed with lupus. dear god if i would have known this would happen. I would never have let her get the vaccine

    My son, against my better judgement was given tdap, HepA and the meningococcal vaccines a few weeks ago at his 11yr old check up. Sunday night he broke out with a rash across his face. I am fearing he has lupus. I had the dr order labs for it today so we will find out soon. I am so sick about this, I can’t even imagine this happening. It’s my worst nightmare.
