What Should You Know about the Shingles Vaccine?

You may have heard about a vaccination that is available for the prevention of shingles. The vaccine is known as Zostavax. Shingles or “zoster” is a painful rash that occurs along a nerve on one side of the body that lasts about three weeks. It is a common problem with about one in five people having the problem sometime in their life. The symptoms are pain along the nerve that is infected followed by blisters and rash and then scabs. Some cases can be mild but some cases can be severe and cause pain for months to years. Cases tend to be more severe in older individuals. The vaccination has been promoted to prevent shingles.
