National Shortage of Shingrix (Shingles Vaccine)
December 2018 Update
The Shingrix (shingles vaccine) shortage continues and is expected to last through 2019.
Yale Health will reach out to individual members to start the vaccine series as our supply allows. In this process we will prioritize those at highest risk of developing shingles.
