New OI vaccines
Aug 15, 2006


Please could you advise what potential value the new Zostovax (shingles) vaccines are for HIV positive people? I am male, not currently on meds but have had shingles in the past. I do not know whether I have HPV virus or not. Thank you,

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Currently the Zostovax (shingles) vaccine isn't approved for use in patients with immune deficiencies. I'd be cautious (but curious) for now. BY
