2021 Shingles Vaccination Update for Frontline Healthcare Professionals
This webinar will provide attendees with an update regarding shingles epidemiology and current trends in vaccination rates.

Low shingles vaccination rates in Australian adults impact the epidemiology of the disease. This webinar will explore what current guidelines advise regarding improving pertussis vaccination rates in Australia, and therefore reducing disease burden and complications.

It will discuss the two shingles vaccinations available in Australia, comparing efficacy, safety, dosage regimens and indications for each vaccine.

This meeting is CPD-accredited for RACGP members (Activity ID 305628) and accredited for ACRRM members (Activity ID 24536).
