With the release of the new vaccine Shingrix for the prevention of shingles and postherpetic neuralgia, it begs the question as to whether this new vaccine is any better than the current vaccine, Zostavax. Pharmacists are in a unique position to help identify patients who are at risk of developing shingles, and by knowing which vaccine is better suited for a patient, can potentially help a patient from long term suffering.
