CDC COCA Call: Recommendations for the Use of Herpes Zoster Vaccines
May 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Herpes zoster, also known as shingles, is a common viral disease with about one million cases occurring each year in the United States. In October 2017, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a 2-dose, recombinant zoster vaccine ([RZV], Shingrix), for the prevention of herpes zoster in adults aged ≥50 years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends Shingrix for use in immunocompetent adults age ≥50 years. During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about CDC recommendations for herpes zoster vaccines and the clinical guidelines for the new vaccine.
