Question: 

It’s time for me to get my second Twinrix vaccine but I’ve developed Shingles. Can I go ahead with the getting the Twinrix vaccine?

Answer: 

Please consult with your immunization provider who can do a thorough assessment and make a recommendation. Shingles may cause a less than optimal response to the vaccine, depending on how long you have had it.
