Shingrix Shingles Vaccine

Shingle is a viral infection that causes a rash that is excruciatingly painful. It is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox and can affect anyone who has had chickenpox in the past. It is most common in people over the age of 50, and the risk increases with age, but it can also affect younger people, especially women. Certain diseases that weaken your immune system (for example, HIV and cancer) increase your risk.

It is not uncommon for people to experience recurring cases of shingles, which can be excruciatingly painful. Shingles is a generally unpleasant virus that can last up to 5 weeks. While it is usually treatable with medication, it can cause more severe cases that can result in vision loss or paralysis.

In general, shingrix is advised for people over the age of 50.

Your risk of developing shingles increases as your immune system weakens naturally with age. Individuals can receive the vaccination at a younger age, providing protection from the start.

 

Two doses of the Shingrix vaccine are required for maximum protection.

The second vaccination should be given two to six months after the first one. A completed course provides up to 90% shingle protection.

 

Shingles is caused by the reactivation of chickenpox, which can lay dormant in the body after infection.

You cannot contract shingles from an infected person. If someone who has never had chickenpox or received the chickenpox vaccination comes into contact with someone who is infected with shingles, they will get chickenpox rather than shingles. It is possible that they will develop shingles later in life.

Shingles is characterised by a painful, blistering rash.

It is caused by the reactivation of the chickenpox virus, which typically occurs after a childhood infection. The risk of shingles increases significantly after the age of 50, which is why the vaccine is most commonly given to people over the age of 50. Shingles can, however, affect people in their 30s and 40s.

 

In the United Kingdom, 90 percent of adults were infected with chickenpox as children. 25 percent of these adults will develop shingles, and 20 percent will develop long-term complications such as localised nerve pain that can last up to six or seven years.

 

Shingles symptoms include the following:

Tingling or painful skin sensation

Headache

I’m feeling generally ill.

A rash that is red and blotchy on only one side of the body
