ZOSTAVAX II is the only vaccine for the prevention of shingles (Herpes zoster infection)

 

Herpes zoster (HZ) is painful and can have severe complications. The most frequent complication is PHN. This complication occurs in about 20% of adults with HZ and often has a major impact on quality of life

 

The incidence and severity of HZ and its complications increase with age. Up to 10% of people over 65 years of age will be admitted to hospital with an episode of HZ.
