Even with access to exceptional healthcare, the fatality rate for invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) is approximately 10% in the United States. These deaths occur largely in patients over age 65 years. At the same time, herpes zoster or “shingles” caused by the varicella-zoster virus causes untold morbidity in the form disabling pain and often affects the same patient population. Both IPD and herpes zoster are largely preventable and are included as part of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice’s recommended vaccinations for adults. This educational activity will provide the information necessary to understand the current adult vaccine schedule, reporting requirements for vaccine-related adverse events, and barriers to patient adherence.
