Nurse Talking with Senior Patient Provider

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has developed a new one-page chart to illustrate the differences between the two zoster vaccines (Shingrix [RZV]; GSK and Zostavax [ZVL]; Merck). The document provides information at a glance about storage (freezer vs. refrigerator), vaccine type, route of administration (IM vs. SC), dosing intervals, age indications, contraindications, adverse effects, and concomitant administration.
