All Care Medical is now offering ZOSTAVAX, the vaccine that helps reduce your risk for Shingles.
Given as a single shot, consider ZOSTAVAX if you’ve ever had chickenpox and are 60 years of age or older. The same virus that causes chickenpox stays in your body and can later resurface as Shingles (a painful, blistering rash). ZOSTAVAX works by helping your immune system protect you from Shingles.
ZOSTAVAX is not a treatment for Shingles once you have it. Talk to your doctor at All Care Medical to see if ZOSTAVAX is right for you.

Important Safety Information
· ZOSTAVAX does not protect everyone, so some people who get the
vaccine may still get Shingles.
· You should not get ZOSTAVAX if you are allergic to any of its ingredients,
including gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system, take
high doses of steroids, or are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You
should not get ZOSTAVAX to prevent chickenpox.
· Talk to your health care provider if you plan to get ZOSTAVAX at the
same time as PNEUMOVAX®23 (Pneumococcal Vaccine Polyvalent)
because it may be better to get these vaccines at least 4 weeks apart.
· Possible side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump,
warmth, or bruising at the injection site, as well as headache.
· ZOSTAVAX contains a weakened chickenpox virus. Tell your health care
provider if you will be in close contact with newborn infants, someone
who may be pregnant and has not had chickenpox or been vaccinated
against chickenpox, or someone who has problems with their immune
system. Your health care provider can tell you what situations you may
need to avoid.
