Are you 50 years old or older? If yes, did you know that you are at a higher risk of developing shingles? Were you aware that one in three people over the age of 50 will develop shingles?
Shingles can occur in anyone who has had chickenpox, as it is a reactivation of the varicella virus. Certain factors, such as age, can put individuals at an increased risk for developing shingles.
There is no cure for shingles, however thankfully there is a vaccine that can help keep you from developing shingles or reduce the severity of your symptoms and complications from virus.
Call our clinic today for an appointment to receive the Zostavax II or the Shingrix vaccine!
