NWOPCP is happy to report that we now have the SHINGRIX vaccine available to administer to our patients! SHINGRIX is a newly approved vaccine to prevent shingles. Shingles (also known as herpes zoster or zoster) is a painful skin rash, often with blisters, that is caused by the varicella zoster or chicken pox virus. SHINGRIX is recommended for adults age 50 and older and can be administered to folks who have already received the Zostavax vaccine. Please contact your insurance company to see if the vaccine is a covered benefit.
