  • Zoster (Shingles)
  • Contraindications & Precautions

If an adult eligible for RZV has already had zoster with postherpetic neuralgia or ophthalmic complications, when can they receive zoster vaccine?

Once they are no longer acutely ill, they can be vaccinated with Shingrix. There is no evidence that vaccine will have therapeutic effect for a person with existing zoster or postherpetic neuralgia.
