One of the Recommended Vaccines by Disease

For the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), see Shingrix (recombinant zoster vaccine) Recommendations

Summary of Recommendations

Routine Vaccination of People 50 Years Old and Older

CDC recommends Shingrix® (recombinant zoster vaccine) as preferred over Zostavax® (zoster vaccine live) for the prevention of herpes zoster (shingles) and related complications. CDC recommends two doses of Shingrix separated by 2 to 6 months for immunocompetent adults age 50 years and older:
  • Whether or not they report a prior episode of herpes zoster
  • Whether or not they report a prior dose of Zostavax
  • Who have chronic medical conditions (e.g., chronic renal failure, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pulmonary disease), unless a contraindication or precaution exists. Similar to Zostavax, Shingrix may be used for adults who are
    • are taking low-dose immunosuppressive therapy
    • are anticipating immunosuppression
    • have recovered from an immunocompromising illness
  • Who are getting other adult vaccines in the same doctor’s visit, including those routinely recommended for adults age 50 years and older, such as influenza and pneumococcal vaccines. The safety and efficacy of concomitant administration of two adjuvanted vaccines, such as Shingrix and Fluad, have not been evaluated.
  • It is not necessary to screen, either verbally or by laboratory serology, for evidence of prior varicella infection.
Zostavax® may still be used to prevent shingles in certain cases for healthy adults 60 years and older. For example, you could use Zostavax if a person is allergic to Shingrix, prefers Zostavax, or requests immediate vaccination and Shingrix is unavailable. Learn more about Zostavax.

Timing Considerations for Giving Shingrix

For patients who previously had herpes zoster

There is no specific amount of time you need to wait before administering Shingrix to patients who have had herpes zoster. However, you should not give Shingrix to patients who are experiencing an acute episode of herpes zoster.

For patients who previously received Zostavax

Consider the patient’s age and when he or she received Zostavax to determine when to vaccinate with Shingrix. Studies examined the safety of Shingrix vaccination five or more years after Zostavax vaccination. Shorter intervals were not studied, but there are no theoretical or data concerns to indicate that Shingrix would be less safe or effective if administered less than five years after a patient received Zostavax.
You may consider a shorter interval between Zostavax and Shingrix based on the age at which the patient received Zostavax. Differences in efficacy between Shingrix and Zostavax are most pronounced among older patients. Studies have shown that the effectiveness of Zostavax wanes substantially over time, leaving recipients with reduced protection against herpes zoster. For example, the vaccine efficacy among adults age 70 to 79 years and adults age 80 years and older is 41% and 18%, respectively, on average during the first three years following Zostavax vaccination.
Shingrix should not be administered less than two months after a patient received Zostavax.

For patients who do not report a prior episode of varicella

When vaccinating adults age 50 years and older, there is no need to screen for a history of varicella (chickenpox) infection or to conduct laboratory testing for serologic evidence of prior varicella infection. More than 99% of adults age 50 years and older worldwide have been exposed to varicella zoster virus, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) considers people born in the United States prior to 1980 immune to varicella. Therefore, even if a person does not recall having chickenpox, serologic testing for varicella immunity is not recommended. It is often a barrier to herpes zoster  vaccination, and false negatives are common. However, if serologic evidence of varicella susceptibility becomes available to the healthcare provider, providers should follow ACIP guidelines for varicella vaccination. Shingrix has not been evaluated in persons who are seronegative to varicella, and it is not indicated for the prevention of varicella.

Contraindications and Precautions for Herpes Zoster Vaccination

Shingrix should not be administered to:
  • A person with a history of severe allergic reaction, such as anaphylaxis, to any component of a vaccine or after a previous dose of Shingrix
  • A person who is known to be seronegative for varicella
    • It is not necessary to screen (either verbally or via laboratory serology) for a history of varicella. However, if a person is known to be varicella-negative via serologic testing, providers should follow ACIP guidelines for varicella vaccination.
  • A person experiencing an acute episode of herpes zoster. Shingrix is not a treatment for herpes zoster or postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). The general guidance for any vaccine is to wait until the acute stage of the illness is over and symptoms abate.
Shingrix has not been studied in pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding. Providers should consider delaying Shingrix vaccination for these women.
Adults with a minor acute illness, such as a cold, can receive Shingrix. Adults with a moderate or severe acute illness should usually wait until they recover before getting the vaccine. This includes anyone with a temperature of 101.3°F or higher.

  4. C'est au cours de mes recherches sur le VIH / Herpès que je suis tombé sur les informations relatives au VIH / Herpès; informations qui sont assez faciles à trouver lors d’une recherche sur STD sur Google. J'étais dans un complot à l'époque, je pensais que le VIH / Herpès guéri 'était un complot, c'était quelque chose d'ignorance, mais je trouvais assez intéressant de prendre des médicaments à base de plantes. J'ai posé des questions sur les remèdes à base de plantes sur les sites Web officiels VIH / Herpès et les modérateurs m'ont interdit de le faire, car ils m'ont dit que je suivais la propagande sur le VIH / Herpès. C’est ce qui a renforcé ma conviction qu’il existait un remède contre le vih / l’herpès. Puis j’ai trouvé une dame d’Allemagne, Achima Abelard, Dr Itua, soigner le vih. et aujourd’hui, je n’ai pas guéri du vih / herpès dans ma vie, j’ai cherché des groupes du vih / herpès pour tenter d’établir des contacts avec des personnes afin d’en apprendre davantage sur le traitement du VIH / herpès avec la même maladie, ces informations vous sont utiles et je voulais faire de mon mieux pour les diffuser dans l'espoir d'aider d'autres personnes.Le Dr Itua Herbal Medicine me fait croire qu'il existe un espoir pour les personnes atteintes de la maladie de Parkinson , Schizophrénie, Cancer, Scoliose, Fibromyalgie, Syndrome de toxicité à la fluoroquinolone, Fibrodysplasie osseuse progressive, Infertilité, Épilepsie, Diabète, Maladie cœliaque, Arthrite, Sclérose latérale amyotrophique, Maladie d’Alzheimer, Carcinose adrocortique.Agestion Le sida, l'herpès, les maladies inflammatoires de l'intestin, le trouble copd, le diabète, l'hépatite, j'ai lu en ligne à son sujet comment il a guéri Tasha et Tara, Conley, Mckinney et bien d'autres suffrins de toutes sortes de maladies. Je l'ai donc contacté. Il est médecin aux herbes avec un cœur unique de Dieu, contactez Emal..drituaherbalcenter @ ou téléphonez au whatsapp .. + 2348149277967.
