Shingals Vaccine

Were you looking for information about the Shingles Vaccine? Shingals vaccine is a common misspelling of shingles vaccine.
 
The shingles vaccine (Zostavax®) is used for preventing shingles in people 50 years old and older. It is a live but weakened version of the varicella-zoster virus that causes the body to produce an immune system response to the virus (which helps prevent shingles). The shingles vaccine is given as a single injection, just under the skin of the upper arm. Studies have shown than the vaccine reduces the chance of shingles by about 50 percent.
