1 day ago · Shingles Vaccine (Shingrix): Is it advisable for transplant patients? in Transplants

Hello all, I'm a little confused. The COVID 9 vaccine is not the the Shingles vaccine. At my heart transplant, I was told we could not have the Shingles vaccine because at that time it was a live vaccine. Since Shingrix has arrived on the market, this has changed. I just contacted my nurse coordinator and was told that this vaccine is safe for me. I'm planning on getting it on Wednesday. Everyone's medical history is unique and our coordinators are able to offer the best medical counsel. I will await a COVID vaccine that makes sense for all of us with new organs. We'll see what happens!

I agree with Ginger! Whenever we take anti-rejection meds – I had a heart transplant and take both sirolimus and cellcept – there are pharmacists available to us through either CVS Specialty or from whichever company you obtain your meds. They are available to answer these types of questions. I might suggest you try there and explain your circumstances and symptoms. Ellen

Adding my two cents: moving to southern Arizona in the desert and my dry eyes were getting much worse. Just spoke with opthamologist's office and I will try Refresh Mega 3 ointment, Systane nighttime gel at night – my eyes are extremely dry in the morning – and Aquaphor on my eyelids as they are very sensitive. I have a feeling this will work!
