Shingles Vaccine Shortage
Due to the national shortage of Shingrix, Virginia Mason has a very limited supply and is not providing the vaccine to additional patients at this time. Please check with your Virginia Mason provider in the future regarding availability, or you may want to consider getting the vaccine at a different health care facility or pharmacy if you would rather not wait.
