National Shortage of Shingrix (Shingles Vaccine)

At this time the supply of Shingrix is unpredictable. We did not receive the doses that we had been promised. We do expect additional supplies but delivery dates are not yet known. 

As supplies become available we will notify individuals who are due by email. We will prioritize those that are closest to the end of their six month window to receive their second dose.
