The press has been following a new NON live virus shingles vaccine called Shingrix.

Mike is post liver transplant on the Immuno-suppressant PROGRAF (small dose now after 7years).

He has always been told he cannot get live virus immunizations....thus no protection for Shingles.

Has anyone talked to their doc about this new vaccine? Can Mike get it?

Thanks,
