Zostavax II, a new formulation of zoster vaccine that is kept in the refrigerator instead of the freezer

Merck will promote Zostavax II, a new formulation of zoster vaccine that is kept in the refrigerator instead of the freezer.

The original Zostavax vaccine was more difficult to store or transport because it had to be kept at -15ºC or less.

Zostavax II can be kept in the fridge...like most other vaccines.
