New Zoster Vaccine available in 2018

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has licensed Shingrix, the new shingles vaccine developed by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), for use in adults age 50 and older. Patients may receive this vaccine even if they have already had Zostavax vaccine in the past. Shingrix is a 2 dose series separated by a minimum of 8 weeks. Availability at PCHD is sometime in early 2018. Until that time, we have depleted our supply of the current Zoster vaccine while we await the new and improved Shingrix. Please call for availability.
Thank you!
