Going to Russia for the Vitaherpavac vaccine

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just want to let you guys know I'm planning my trip to Russia to get the vaccine. I expect to go in Oct. Since plane tickets are way cheaper. I am going to call the clinic there to speak with the doctor and also my own doctor to get his opinion. After I do that I will make sure I have my visa, passport, and paperwork ready before hand. I can't wait to go!

I can't wait to hear what happens! I've heard a tiny but about it, but don't know much. Is it a therapeutic vaccine? Like a cure, so to speak?

From what i understand it is not a cure, but therapeutic. It heightens your immune systems response to the virus and increases your antibody level.

I'm willing to go! I've actually been researching Russia extensively to be culturally inclined for when I go. Its a semi expensive trip. I'm not worried about the money at all, but I'm worried about going alone. The soonest I can go is early November. Just remember Russia has some of the coldest winters ever.

@movingslowly, if you want PM me. Yea its very cold in the winter that's why i wanted to go in october. I found the Michelle thomas system, which i find the best way to learn a language. You can get it on amazon.

Do you have any idea how long you will have to be there to get the series of shots?

From what i recall from my conversation, depending on how long you stay will determine how many many shots you can get there. I think the guy said he got two and brought home the rest.

To be honest all I now is about the vitaherpevac. Takes one day to get the first injection. Then you bring your booster shot home and six months later inject yourself with it. There could possible be more tests such as a immunology test before getting the vaccine. You need to contact the clinic you plan to visit first before traveling there. I'm still in the process of gathering all the info. I emailed EMC in Moscow on Friday asking for details and hope to hear back from them soon. Also, hoping to get info on panavir as well.

Please keep us updated after you go! I am very excited about this vaccine. Easily the most promising treatment which currently exists. Time to start saving for that airfare to Russia!

Hello, I'm new to the forum and I have acyclovir resistant herpes. I have never heard of this vaccine you mention. Can anyone here tell me more about it, how you found it, what other have told you who have had the vaccine? I would absolutely travel to Russia, or anywhere for that matter, if there was something that might help. I've had unending OBs since 1999. Thousands of them - no relief from any of the drugs in the U.S. market.

This new vaccine sounds very promising. I'm ultra desparate at this point. My hsv had been pretty tame since 2007 and I would only get very mild outbreaks every 3 months or so and only took valtrex during outbreaks. However, since a few months ago, i've been getting extremely bad outbreaks almost every week. I have no idea what happened but no amount of supplements or valtex has helped. It is super ultra depressing. Would a bunch of members from the board considering going together? I wouldn't mind doing a group thing.

Hello everyone,

I finally went to see my Doctor and I spoke to him about me going to get the vaccine. At first he was totally against it because of the vaccine being in Russia. Then I told him everything about the vaccine, doctor's name, and where the clinic was and he was very impressed with all the information I had gathered. Now he is optimistic and I gave him the name of the vaccine for him to look up. I will be going back next month for a follow up. The only bad news is I have used my trip money to pay my bills and now it will have to wait :(

No you dont need to speak Russian. What's funny is I was using google translator to email the clinic and the nurse there actually asked if we could communicate in English cause she didnt understand my Russian LOL. I'm actually looking into the Lupidon vaccine right now because you can get it shipped to you with a doctor's prescription. From what I gathered it seems that the difference between the two vaccines is that Lupidon isnt as strong as the vitaherpavac and you need to get a shot every month.

No, unfortunately once you have it you cant get rid of it. I would also suggest to anyone that has just got it to try and stay off antivirals for a month or so because i have been on it since i got it and have no been outbreak free ever and that was in february. A doctor told me that the meds are stopping the body from producing antibodies.

      @Kata33 what do you mean by odd sensation when passing urine?  If I may ask where was location of your outbreak? 
    • Kata33
      @CHTJust a positive result, no numbers were mentioned, no suggestion of another test. Why would these be important? Sores all healed, feeling better each day, though I still have some residual soreness, odd sensations when passing urine etc, and I get tired/achy if I'm too active. But it's only been two weeks, so I guess that's to be expected? Thank you so much for all if your responses, it is so much appreciated!

      Hi Kata.... sorry for the not so good news....I believe you said it was a swab test, correct?  Did the results come with a number or just a "positive" for HSV2?  Did your doctor suggest taking an IgG antibody test at some point?   Are you doing okay?

      I wrote it for you, your wife and all viewers struggling with hsv. Since you don’t know much about hsv, and many believe it is mild. It is definitely not mild for many people, usually women suffer the worst. It’s good to learn from veterans who have researched this topic for years.

      Results arrived this morning. HSV-2. Hey ho.
