Question: 

For a senior is it better to get the shingrix 50mcg/0.5ML zoster vaccine non-live shot in 6 months after getting the first shot or should I get it in 2 months

Answer: 

The second dose of Shingrix is recommended 2 to 6 months after the first dose. As per the vaccine product monograph, the vaccine manufacturer states that there is no difference in the immune response to the vaccine if the second dose is given 2 or 6 months after the first.
