  • Vaccine Administration Errors

If RZV (Shingrix) is erroneously given to a child for prevention of varicella, the dose is invalid, but is there a waiting period before a valid dose of varicella vaccine can be given? Is it OK to give a dose of varicella vaccine as soon as the error is discovered?

There is no waiting period. The varicella vaccine dose can be given at any time after the RZV dose.
