Why Herpes Zoster (Shingles) Vaccine?
To date, there is only one recombinant HZ vaccine available on the market. This vaccine is more effective than the older live attenuated virus vaccine for reducing the risk of both shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. Based on this data, in October 2017, the CDC issued a recommendation for the universal use of recombinant HZ vaccine for the prevention of HZ in immunocompromised adults over the age of 50. However, the existing recombinant HZ vaccine is associated with increased prevalence and severity of local and systemic side effects. In addition, the raw material and production limitations have resulted in a chronic short supply of the vaccine.
