NEW SHINGLES VACCINE NOW AVAILABLE AT RITE AID.
A brand new shingles vaccine, Shingrix® has recently been approved by the FDA. For full protection, you will need 2 doses administered 2-6 months apart. In clinical studies, the 2-dose vaccine series has been shown to be 97% effective in preventing shingles in those 50 and older and 90% effective for those 70 and older.
Because Shingrix® is so effective, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is now recommending it as the preferred shingles vaccine for adults 50 and older. Even if you have previously received Zostavax®, a shingles vaccine in use since 2006, it is recommended that you be revaccinated with the 2-dose series of Shingrix®.
Shingles annually affects about one million people in the U.S., most commonly in people 60 years and older, so make sure you are protected and talk to your pharmacist today.
