Is the shingles vaccine covered by the state’s health insurance plans, and can the state lower the age limit for receiving the vaccine?

The Zoster vaccination for Shingles is covered. Immunization schedules are based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and are subject to change. We follow the CDC recommendation on age, which is that vaccination begins at age 60. There are no anticipated changes in regards to the Shingles vaccine at this time. Current guidelines can be found under the CDC schedules at cdc.gov/vaccines.
