What is Shingles?

Shingles is a painful skin rash, often with blisters. Its main symptom is pain, which can be quite severe. Zvx is a single dose vaccine that is recommended for adults 60 years of age and older.

Shingles is a viral infection that can cause a painful rash. The virus that causes shingles, the varicella-zoster virus, is the same virus that causes chickenpox. Most people who get shingles are over the age of 50, although anyone who has had chickenpox can develop shingles. The good news is that there is a shingles vaccine in Ontario to help prevent it. Book your appointment today to get your shingle vaccine at any of our travel vaccine clinics locations. You can book online at: travelvaccineclinic.fullslate.com or call the travel vaccine clinic at 416-461-2419.

Zvx is covered by OHIP for those between the ages of 65 and 70.

The zvx vaccine is recommended for all adults over the age of 65. It is a safe and effective way to protect yourself from this potentially debilitating disease. The vaccination works by boosting your immunity to the varicella-zoster virus, and it is most effective when given before you reach the age of 70. If you have already had shingles, you can still benefit from the vaccine, as it can help to prevent recurrent episodes.

While the shingles vaccine is not 100% effective, it is still your best defence against this often painful and debilitating disease. If you are over the age of 65, talk to your doctor about getting the shingles vaccine. It could be one of the best decisions you ever make for your health.

To schedule an appointment to get the shingles vaccine in Toronto, Richmond Hill, North York, Mississauga, and Etobicoke, contact the Travel Vaccine Clinic today by visiting; travelvaccineclinic.fullslate.com or call 416-461-2419.

"I saw your dr. last weekend and it was a great experience. I felt that he made sure I am traveling with the most recommended vaccines and nothing i do not need. Don't be fooled by his young age appearance, he knows his stuff!!! Efel was the person at the front desk, very sweet and friendly. Prices are OK especially for the level of professionalism they showed."
