There’s a new vaccine coming to help ward off what can be a nasty, life ruining disease.
The Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit will begin offering a vaccine for “shingles” later this month.
Shingles can be hideously painful, and can last for months. About one quarter of the population will contract shingles in their lifetime.
The vaccine injection will cost 190 dollars. However, some insurance programs may cover that cost. For more information, call the Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit, or go to their website.
