The plan includes Herpes Zoster vaccination (Zostavax, 1 dose).
Herpes Zoster is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After chickenpox sores heal, the virus lies dormant in your nerves and may later reactivate as Zoster. Zoster in early stage is very often misunderstood with general skin disorder as only a few blisters appear on the skin. Therefore patients could have missed the best treatment time if Zoster is not diagnosed early. The pain associated with Zoster could last for years. And if the virus attacks the eyes, it could result in inflammation of the nerves of human face or even lost in eyesight.
Immune function will decline with age. Therefore, the risk for Zoster increases substantially after age 50, although the virus does not only attack older adults. Studies show 95% of adults are at risk for Zoster. Having Zoster does not guarantee immunity from recurrence. Adults who have had chickenpox are therefore recommended for the vaccination.
Zostavax is the first vaccine to help prevent Zoster and its associated pain (acute and chronic) and PHN. It has been registered in 62 countries in the world.

- Those who are allergic to gelatin, neomycin, or any component of the vaccine
