What is Zostavax®?
ZOSTAVAX® (Zoster Vaccine Live) is a vaccine that is used for adults age 50 and older, designed by pharmaceutical giant Merck for preventing shingles (also known as zoster virus). Zostavax vaccine was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006. It was the only approved shingles vaccine in the country until late 2017, which allowed the company to earn over $740 million in sales from the vaccine in 2016, according to reports.
Zostavax® is different from other vaccines in that it contains a live, weakened form of the virus "herpes zoster" (AKA “live, attenuated virus”).
Zostavax® is designed to reduce the risk of getting herpes zoster — a painful condition also known as “shingles.” Individuals aged 50 years and older are at increased risk of developing the virus. Zostavax live vaccine is typically recommended for people aged 60 years and older by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and doctors usually give the vaccine in a one-dose shot.
