Herpes zoster is caused by reactivation of the latent varicella zoster virus and often occurs in immunocompromised individuals. We describe a rare case of an immunocompetent patient with herpes zoster triggered by Shingrix, a non-live vaccine designed to protect against herpes zoster. Although herpes zoster has been described as a reaction to vaccinations before, to our knowledge this is the first report of herpes zoster triggered by a varicella zoster vaccine.
