I have been on Enbrel for several years and wanted to know if anyone in this group has taken the new shingles vaccine Shingrix? If so what was your response? A nurse at Amgen, the maker of Enbrel said she couldn't advise about taking Shingrix while on Enbrel. The Shingrix literature says those on Immune suppressors would get a lesser shingles protective response. Shingrix is not a live vaccine and I think that is the only thing prohibited while on Enbrel. Thanks for your help.

Hello Mark,

I took a look at the manufacturers page and like you previously stated it says that you should not take any live vaccines while on the medication, however, right above that line it states that you should take all vaccines prior to starting this medication. I believe that because they went out of their way to mention that the vaccines should not be live it would acceptable to get the Shingrix vaccine due to it not being live.

If you are still concerned on the matter, discuss this issue with your doctor prior to getting the vaccine. Always to err on the side of caution.

Best of luck and have a wonderful day.
