A new systematic review published in PLoS titled, "Herpes Zoster Risk Reduction through Exposure to Chickenpox Patients: A Systematic Multidiscplinary Review," confirms that the widespread adoption of chickenpox vaccine over the past 30 years, which has resulted in a decline in chickenpox cases associated with infection from the wild-circulating virus, has led to a concerning increase in the incidence of herpes zoster (shingles), a far more serious expression of chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) infection.
Indeed, since the introduction of universal chickenpox vaccination in the US in 1995, the vaccine has been found to have only limited effectiveness, with 1 in 5 children receiving the original vaccine experiencing "breakthrough" infections." This is why, at present, children on the CDC's immunization schedule receive two doses. But increasing the number of doses isn't working either. For example, in 2006, a chickenpox outbreak occurred in a population of Arkansas schoolchildren with 97% immunization compliance. When the researchers looked at the difference in outbreak cases between one-dose and two-dose children, none could be found.
Another glaring problem is the fact that the chickenpox vaccine itself is clearly a source of infection. The CDC states "Chickenpox vaccines contain weakened live VZV, which may cause latent (dormant) infection." When the goal is to prevent infection, injecting children with the very infectious and communicable pathogen the vaccine is supposed to prevent seems like the very definition of quackery, does it not? We forget that there was a time when injecting infectious disease material into otherwise healthy children was considered a bad idea. And then there were the hundreds of millions of years of bodily evolution where no such option existed, but which nonetheless enabled us through our own well-adapted innate and acquired immune apparatus to survive as a species up unto this point in time, where now we flagrantly cast our biological inheritance to the wind in favor of mass experimentation with 60+ vaccines given to our childen by age 6.
One of the most carefully guarded secrets within the history of vaccinology is that the original vaccine master seed stocks, whose components are either still being used to create live vaccines, or which have contaminated oral vaccines still be used today, contain retroviruses and other hidden pathogens. One reason for this terrible fact is that reverse transcriptase was not even discovered until 1970, so there was no way of knowing there was a problem when the original vaccines were being developed. There is also the case of the simian virus known as SV-40 which contaminated the original oral polio vaccines, and which is responsible for the infection of millions around the world with a cancer-causing virus, and which is still being passed down from parent-to-child today.

Chickenpox is mild enough disease in childhood that vaccination seems as worrisome to me as the disease.

I agree mostly with what you are implying; however the article said the vaccine has been out for 30 years. It used to be said, if you had the chicken pox when an infant then your chance of getting shingles went up some percent every year after the age of 55. What the article is saying, the incidence of shingles is increasing in younger people who had the vaccine, is the way I read it.

Well done OP
Friend of mine had that shingles on his bum he was unable to sit down for about a week, he had to lay on his belly all the time. He thinks he's now at risk of surprise attacks from it, a real bummer in his case.

Most vaccines are made this way,and in some cases,quite purposely .
The original bird flu vaccine was made to make us sick ,as is the seasonal vaccination ,to which Piers Morgan can attest .
If you read the vaccination schedule for children in the USA today ,they've had a few dozen vaccinations by the time they are four .
Unnecessary vaccines are just money makers for big pharm ,which all became more of a pushed agenda ,in the 1990s ,which is when this vaccination was introduced to the public .
Let me see if I can find the studies in regard to it .

I've been saying this for years ,and told by people in the vaccine business,I was an uninformed idiot .
