Shingles Vaccine - Zoxtavas
Zostavax, the Shingles Vaccine, is now available at our clinic in Glasgow.
The vaccine has a product license for people aged 50 and over, and can be administered to anyone able to receive a live vaccine. (The main categories of people who should not receive live vaccines are people with reduced or suppressed immunity, including those taking high doses of steroids or during pregnancy.) The vaccine is given once only. It can be administered "off-label" to individuals aged less than 50 at the doctor's discretion.
