vaccination for shingles?

Filed under: Uncategorized — SL @ 10:55 am

I hadn't thought much about vaccination for shingles until my SO got recurrent episodes of it.

Because cell mediated immunity to varicella-zoster-virus (VCV) declines with age, vaccination for shingles is something to be considered in those over 50.

The information sheet at NCIRS-University of Sydney may be of interest.
