Should I get the Vaccine?

The Shingles vaccine.

Two zoster vaccines have been approved for use in people over 50 years old.

Shingrix (GSK) is a recombinant subunit vaccine which has been used in many countries since 2017.

Zostavax (Merck) is an attenuated vaccine which consists of a larger-than-normal dose of chickenpox vaccine. …

Shingrix is 2 shots at least 2 month apart. Zostavax only one.

In Canada the cost of Shingrix is about CA$300 for the two doses.

I’ll ask my doctor before making a final decision.
