;o a los nervios por el virus. El riesgo y gravedad de los herpes y la neuralgia post-herpética aumentan con la edad y dos tercios de los casos de herpes se producen en personas de más de 50 años.[4]

"Hasta la introducción de Zostavax, no había nada para proteger frente a esta dolorosa y debilitadora enfermedad," dijo Jean-Paul Kress , director general de Sanofi Pasteur MSD. "Estamos muy contentos de que el Departamento de Salud del Reino Unido haya reconocido la importancia de la vacuna contra el herpes zoster y esperamos conseguir más asociaciones en Europa para la inmunización con este producto verdaderamente innovador."

Zostavax se ha utilizado en Estados Unidos desde 2006 y en Canadá desde 2009 y se han distribuido más de 11 millones de dosis de la vacuna desde su lanzamiento.
