  • Zoster (Shingles)
  • Contraindications & Precautions

If my patient is taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir), can she receive zoster vaccine?

Yes. Although oseltamivir is an antiviral drug, it is only effective against influenza A and B viruses. Shingrix does not contain live virus and will not be affected by oseltamivir.
