Battling A Painful Enemy Through Herpes Zoster Vaccination

November 16, 2020 @ 12:40 PM - 1:00 PM EST

It is estimated that there are more than a million new cases of herpes zoster (shingles) in the US each year. Acute pain, which affects about 90% of older adults with herpes zoster, and chronic pain, or postherpetic neuralgia, which affects about 20% of older adults with herpes zoster, have a major negative impact on patients’ quality of life. This presentation will review the recommendations for use of herpes zoster vaccines in adults in the US.
