The CDC recommends that most adults over the age of 50 get the Shingrix vaccine for protection against shingles (herpes zoster). Many patients at the WCHN Southbury Primary Care clinic in Connecticut are eligible for vaccination but are unaware of this newer vaccine or are unsure if they need the vaccine based on their past medical history and vaccination history. A brief, easy to understand handout was made to educate patients on the Shingrix vaccine and address frequently asked questions.
