Shingles is the reactivation of the chickenpox virus which causes a very painful localized rash. The vaccine is highly recommended for people over 50 years of age, and it can be obtained at our pharmacies.
If you are a resident of Quebec and meet the eligibility criteria for free (over 80 or immunosuppressed 18-79), make an appointment in the "Shingles vaccination-Free" service.
Some services require more than one appointment. Certain fees may apply. Your pharmacist is solely responsible for this service. Ask them for more details.
