Storage & Dosing
SHINGRIX should be refrigerated. DO NOT FREEZE:
Store between 2°C and 8°C (36°F to 46°F) before reconstitution
SHINGRIX is supplied as an adjuvant and antigen for reconstitution:
The antigen is to be reconstituted only with the accompanying adjuvant suspension. After reconstitution, administer SHINGRIX immediately or store refrigerated between 2°C and 8°C (36°F to 46°F) and use within 6 hours. Discard reconstituted vaccine if not used within 6 hours. Do not freeze. Discard if the reconstituted vaccine has been frozen.1
When referring patients to a pharmacy, e-prescribe SHINGRIX. The pharmacy will notify your office when the patient has received the first dose. See how you can make the most of your EHR system here.
- *In a phase 3 clinical study designed to help establish the dosing interval for SHINGRIX, all primary endpoints were met for dosing at a 0- and 6-month interval when compared to dosing at a 0-and 2-month interval. However, a co-primary endpoint (noninferiority) of the immune response was missed for dosing at a 0- and 12-month interval. (The upper limit of the 97.5% confidence interval was 1.53, above the predefined limit of <1.5.)4 GSK has not studied the safety or immune response of 3 doses of SHINGRIX in the indicated population (patients ≥50 years of age).1
