Shingrix is a 2 dose series
The CDC recommends that adults 50 years and older get two doses of the shingles vaccine called Shingrix (recombinant zoster vaccine) to prevent shingles and the complications from the disease. Adults 19 years and older who have weakened immune systems because of disease or therapy should also get two doses of Shingrix, as they have a higher risk of getting shingles and related complications.

A painful skin rash brought on by the chickenpox virus is known as shingles, commonly known as herpes zoster (varicella-zoster virus).m.
It appears when the chickenpox virus that is already present in your body reactivates. The varicella-zoster virus remains dormant in your nerve cells after you have recovered from chickenpox and may reawaken at a later time if your immune system is compromised. Shingles can develop in anyone who has had chicken pox.
Approximately one in five people who have had chickenpox (often in childhood) develop shingles.
Droplets in the air move the disease from person to person. Pneumococci bacteria are often found in the respiratory tract of humans.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises pneumococcal immunization for all infants and children younger than 2 years of age, as well as all adults 65 years of age and older.
The disease is passed from person to person through the exchange of secretions from the nose and throat. This can happen when people cough, kiss, or share eating tools. Meningococcal bacteria can't live outside the body for more than a few minutes, so the disease isn't as easy to spread as the common cold or flu.
Meningococcal disease caused by any serogroup is very dangerous. Even with antibiotic treatment, about 15% of people with meningococcal disease still die.
