Do you also offer the shingles vaccine? When I lived in Mexico City I was told by a doctor it was not available here. Is that still the case to your knowledge?

We received the shingles vaccine last year here, from Quality Care...

The "new" one?  We've had the older one (Zostavax), but looking for the newer one (Shingrix).  

fyi, Shingrix was approved in very late 2017 and we tried to get it whenever we traveled to the US in 2018 and 2019 and it was never available when (and where) we were there.

Shingrix requires two shots. I think I had to wait 3 months between them, so you'll want to make sure you will be able to get the second one too. 

Also, my arm felt like I had been kicked by a mule after the shots.
