I did not say that the Lamb shift is related to the vacuum energies, but the fluctuations. There is coupling with the vacuum fluctuations that is required for the correct Lamb shift to be calculated. And I have yet to find any classical interpretation for the vacuum fluctuations. They can only arise by the quantization of the electric and magnetic fields.
