Any update on answer from Aug 2006 that the Shingles vaccine is not recommended for HIVers?
My specifics, 52 years old, POZ for 10 years, CD 500, no viral load, Lexiva-Truvada-Norvir. Recurrent shingles 3-4 times per year; usually responds well to Valtrex.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your follow up, so many months later.
Given your normal-range CD4 count and recurrent shingles, I'd think that I'd proceed.
I hope this helps.
