New Shingles Vaccine
Have you heard about the new Shingles vaccine? It is called Shingrix, and it is 90% effective at preventing the painful shingles rash. It is recommended for everyone over 50, and even people with suppressed immune systems can get it.
It is a series of two shots. It is available in most pharmacies. Many insurances don’t cover all of the cost, so you should ask how much the injection will cost you. You may get a sore arm or a low grade fever that lasts 2-3 days after the injection.
Please call us to update your vaccination information after you are immunized.
