The Washington County Health Department now has a new and more effective vaccine for the painful shingles virus! If you are over 50 and have ever had the chicken pox, you are at risk for shingles. Shingrix, the new shingles vaccine, provides strong protection against shingles and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the most common complication from shingles.
If you’re over 50 the CDC recommends that you get the new shingles vaccine (Shingrix) even if you previously received Zostavax. Call us at 240-313-3210 to schedule your appointment to receive the new shingles vaccine!
