I received the Zoster, two shots, last spring/summer; I was 61. Not a pleasant reaction…so, glad I got it out of the way. But certainly better than shingles.
Hopefully with the newer vaccines being “non-living” and more transplant recipients, like you Rosemary, receiving it post-transplant, it’ll become universally authorized.
Just a quick FYI…From what I’m finding in my searches, Zostavax is no longer available in the US.
