Shingles vaccination

Shingles vaccination

Shingles manifests itself as a painful rash along a nerve or nerve ganglion. These rashes occur as a result of reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox. Sometimes the pain caused by shingles persists for months or even years after the rash has healed. Shingles most often affects the chest, but can also occur on the back, buttocks, arm, leg and, occasionally, the face and scalp.

People at risk :
