Question: 

I had a shingles shot In 2012. I understand I should be re-vaccinated every 5 years. Is the new, more potent vaccine available? I AM 75 YEARS OLD.

Answer: 

There is currently no recommendation for an additional dose of the shingles vaccine (Zostavax). However, the new shingles vaccine (Shingrix) is available for purchase from some pharmacies and travel clinics.  Please speak to your immunization provider for recommendations.
