Shingles vaccine - Shingrix
As my husband has just turned 70 his GP offered the shingles vaccine. I see that there is a non live vaccine, Shingrix, available since September 1st in the UK. He is just 4 years post transplant on all the meds he left hospital with including Aciclovar 3 times a day. He is immunosuppressed with chronic GVHD, gathering one condition after another, managing to tick off many of the medical specialities. Some issues may be a result of steroids.
I was just wondering if there is much experience or feedback from having this vaccine regarding any side effects or issues of any sort?
He has had no problems with any of his other vaccinations and deferred the MMR as it is live.
