Honestly if you're immunocompromised I suggest not doing the study. If you are not, I suggest asking your oncologist first.
Hello and hope you are doing well.
Shingles vaccine is a live vaccine and is not recommended for people who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Previously, the only vaccination available for shingles was Zostavax, which is an attenuated live virus vaccine, contraindicated for patients with immunodeficiency or immunosuppression. The more recently approved Shingrix vaccine is a recombinant protein and can be given to patients with cancer even if they are receiving or have recently received radiation or chemotherapy.
