About: Shingles is a painful localized skin rash often with blisters that is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox. Anyone who has had chickenpox can develop shingles because VZV remains in the nerve cells of the body after the chickenpox infection clears and VZV can reappear years later causing shingles. Shingles most commonly occurs in people 50 years old or older, people who have medical conditions that keep the immune system from working properly, or people who receive immunosuppressive drugs. The only way to reduce the risk of developing shingles and the long-term pain that can follow shingles is to get vaccinated.
Age Indication: 50 and older
Our Comments: ACIP = 60 and older. Many plans won't pay for under 60.
CDC Recommendations: Healthy adults 50 years or older get 2 doses of Shingrix, 2 to 6 months a part, regardless of Zostavax immunization or shingles diagnosis. More Information
