Shingles Vaccination

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 05 May 2022

Shingles is a painful breakout that usually develops on one side of the body, typically the face or torso. Some people define the pain as an intense burning feeling. For some people, the pain can last for months or even years after the rash disappears. Your risk of getting shingles and PHN increases as you grow older. Shingles vaccination is the only way to secure against shingles and postherpetic neuralgia, one of the most common issue from shingles.
