Tip to the Minister: Against Shingles Outback

Older organizations have been calling for shingles vaccination for some time.

Shingles, caused by the same virus as the smallpox, are a painful disease. It usually starts itching, scratching and scratching, then bubbling and sneezing. The disease is not harmful to many people, but patients sometimes suffer from long-lasting pain in the nerves.

Especially older people suffer from shingles. The Health Council therefore recommends the vaccination of persons at the age of 60 with the new RZV vaccine. Who is older when vaccination is introduced can be compensated.
