Adult vaccination

Vaccination isn’t only for children, it’s also important for adults to be properly immunized. Your profession and daily activities may expose you to diseases that are preventable by vaccination such as influenza, shingles, hepatitis B, Tetanus, measles, rubella, and human papillomavirus (HPV). Also, some vaccines require subsequent dose reminders for adults.

ZOSTAVAX:

Zostavax is the only vaccine shown to help prevent Shingles for people aged 50 years and older. Shingles, also known as zoster or herpes zoster, is a painful skin rash caused by the Varicella-zoster virus (VZV). The same virus that causes chickenpox and remains in the body and can cause shingles when it becomes active. The vaccine is administered as a single dose and helps protect against shingles by boosting the immune system. For people who develop shingles despite vaccination, Zostavax reduces the intensity and duration of zoster-associated pain. Even if you have had chickenpox, you are at risk, which is why the Zostavax vaccine is important, considering that nearly one in three Canadians will be affected and that the risk of shingles increases with age.
