• Zoster (Shingles)
  • Vaccine Recommendations

Can I give Shingrix at the same time as a tuberculin skin test?

Yes. Shingrix is not a live virus vaccine and does not interfere with the tuberculin skin test (TST): it may be administered any time before or after a TST. Administration of a live virus vaccine can interfere with a tuberculin skin test (TST). If the TST is not administered on the same day as a live virus vaccine, the TST should be delayed until 4–6 weeks after the vaccination.
