The effect of short wavelength quantum electrodynamic (QED) correction on plasma-wave propagation is investigated. The effect on plasma oscillations and on electromagnetic waves in an unmagnetized as well as a magnetized plasma is investigated. The effects of the short wavelength QED corrections are most evident for plasma oscillations and for extraordinary modes. In particular, the QED correction allow plasma oscillations to propagate, and the extraordinary mode loses its stop band. The significance of our results is discussed.
