Zoster Prevention Campaign
-----------------------------------------------
Anyone who has had chicken pox is at risk for developing shingles. It is estimated
that lifetime risk is 30%. Shingles can occur in people of all ages, but most
commonly in those over 50 years of age, and this risk increases as people get
older. When shingles develop, a rash or blisters appear on the skin. Shingles can
also be painful. Pain that lasts for months after the rash has healed is called post
herpetic neuralgia (PHN). For some people, this pain can be severe and chronic.

In clinical trials, researchers found the vaccine reduced the occurrence of shingles
and associated post herpetic neuralgia. This vaccine can prevent shingles and
diminish painful symptoms but is not a treatment. To learn more about zoster and
its prevention with new technology, “Zoster Prevention Vaccination Campaign”
will be held in HKUST.

帶狀疱疹(生蛇)預防疫苗注射運動
-----------------------------------------
所有曾患水痘的人士,都有機會出現帶狀疱疹(俗稱生蛇)。估計一生中生蛇的累積風
險為30%。任何年紀都有機會生蛇,但50歲後,發病機會明顯增多,而年紀愈大,患病
風險愈高。 一旦生蛇,皮膚會出現皮疹、水泡,生蛇時患者會感到患處相當疼痛。如
果在生蛇水泡痊癒後三個月仍持續出現疼痛,有機會是屬於帶狀疱疹後遺神經痛,簡稱
PHN。有部份患者PHN疼痛可以是嚴重及持續多年。

臨床研究顯示,預防疫苗能減低生蛇及相關帶狀疱疹後遺神經痛(PHN)的發病率,此外
疫苗亦能減低生蛇帶來的急性或長期疼痛徵狀,但需注意疫苗並不能用作治療生蛇之
用。好消息是科技大學將舉辦 "帶狀疱疹(生蛇)預防疫苗注射運動",向各位講解生蛇
的資訊及最新的預防方法。
