New Vaccine Approved for Shingles

On Oct 20, 2017, the US Food and Drug Administration approved Shingrex™, the first new shingles vaccine in a decade. It is far more effective than the previous vaccine, it is safe, and the FDA approved use for adults 50 and older. It will reduce the risk of serious neurological injuries.
