SHINGRIX Vaccine: Comprehensive Protection Against Shingles

SHINGRIX is an important immunization designed to safeguard individuals from shingles, a painful viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus.

Who Should Get the SHINGRIX Vaccine?

The SHINGRIX vaccine is recommended for adults aged 50 years and older, including those who have previously received the older shingles vaccine, Zostavax. It is particularly crucial for individuals who have not been vaccinated against shingles or those who are uncertain about their vaccination history. Getting vaccinated with SHINGRIX is especially important for individuals who wish to reduce their risk of developing shingles and its associated complications.

The Effectiveness of SHINGRIX

SHINGRIX is proven to be highly effective, with studies showing more than 90% efficacy in preventing shingles and its persistent pain known as postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). By receiving the recommended two-dose series of SHINGRIX, individuals can benefit from long-lasting protection against shingles, providing peace of mind and reducing the risk of encountering this painful and potentially debilitating condition.

Risks and Side Effects

Like any vaccine, SHINGRIX may have potential risks and side effects. Common side effects of the SHINGRIX vaccine may include soreness, redness, or swelling at the injection site, as well as muscle pain, fatigue, headache, or fever. These side effects are generally mild and subside within a few days. It is important to note that serious side effects are rare.
