Using data from 6 health care organizations, we examined herpes zoster (HZ) incidence among children in the varicella vaccine era (2003–2014). BrightcoveDefaultPlayer10.1542/6138649646001PEDS-VA_2018-2917 Video Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: After the 1996 introduction of routine varicella vaccination in the United States, most studies evaluating pediatric herpes zoster (HZ) incidence reported lower incidence over time, with varying degrees of decline. Using the combined databases of 6… Expand
The impact of varicella vaccination on paediatric herpes zoster epidemiology: a Canadian population-based retrospective cohort study.
TLDR
Universal varicella vaccination programme implementation corresponds to decreased paediatric HZ incidence across age groups, in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Expand
Herpes Zoster and Post-Herpetic Neuralgia: Changing Incidence Rates from 1994 to 2018 in the United States.
TLDR
Herpes zoster incidence rates have continued to increase in age groups for which HZ vaccines are not currently recommended, warranting a review of current vaccine recommendations. Expand
The burden of herpes zoster disease in Norway.
TLDR
The majority of the zoster cases occurred among adults aged ≥50 years - the group eligible for zoster vaccination - and increased use of zoster vaccinations may be warranted, especially among persons with co-morbidities. Expand
Incidence Rate of Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus: A Retrospective Cohort Study from 1994 through 2018.
TLDR
The incidence of HZO has increased 3.6% per year from 1994 to 2018 in the United States while increasing at a lower rate in middle-aged adults, and greater efforts should be made to vaccinate eligible adults 50 years of age and older. Expand
Do varicella vaccination programs change the epidemiology of herpes zoster? A comprehensive review, with focus on the United States
  • R. Harpaz
  • Medicine
  • Expert review of vaccines
  • 2019
TLDR
This comprehensive review provides reassurance for countries considering varicella vaccination that an effective program can reducevaricella morbidity and mortality while reducing the likelihood of HZ among children, and potentially, over time, across the entire population. Expand
Herpes Zoster in children: Evaluation of the sixty cases
TLDR
Itching, observed in 48 subjects, was the most common symptom, while 38 subjects complained of pain, and acyclovir was prescribed as antiviral therapy in 33 cases, and none of the cases showed any complication. Expand
Incidence of herpes zoster among varicella-vaccinated children, by number of vaccine doses and simultaneous administration of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine.
TLDR
Overall and within first-dose groups, HZ incidence was lower among children receiving two varicella vaccine doses than before the second dose in all first- dose groups. Expand
Transmission of Vaccine-Strain Varicella-Zoster Virus: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Healthy, vaccinated persons have minimal risk for transmitting vOka to contacts and only if a rash is present, and the existing recommendations for routine varicella vaccination and the guidance that persons with vaccine-related rash avoid contact with susceptible persons at high risk for severevaricella complications are supported. Expand
Herpes Zoster Presentation, Management, and Prevention: A Modern Case-Based Review
  • L. Rosamilia
  • Medicine
  • American Journal of Clinical Dermatology
  • 2019
TLDR
In case-based form, these and other complex but common scenarios will be examined using clinical and viral mechanistic clues, along with updated treatment and prevention guidelines, to provide a modern HZ case management compendium, comprehensive of the diverse age and health populations now presenting with this condition. Expand
The impact of two-dose varicella vaccination on varicella and herpes zoster incidence in South Korea using a mathematical model with changing population demographics.
TLDR
A two-dose varicella vaccination schedule would significantly reducevaricella and HZ incidence in the long term and was the optimal strategy for birth cohort and population-level control. Expand

Herpes zoster incidence among insured persons in the United States, 1993-2006: evaluation of impact of varicella vaccination.
TLDR
HZ incidence has been increasing from 1993-2006 and there is no evidence to attribute the increase to the varicella vaccine program, although rates were higher for females than males throughout the study period. Expand
The Incidence and Clinical Characteristics of Herpes Zoster Among Children and Adolescents After Implementation of Varicella Vaccination
TLDR
Varicella vaccine substantially decreases the risk of herpes zoster among vaccinated children and its widespread use will likely reduce overall herpesZoster burden in the United States. Expand
Update on Incidence of Herpes Zoster Among Children and Adolescents After Implementation of Varicella Vaccination, Antelope Valley, CA, 2000 to 2010
TLDR
During the mature varicella vaccination program, declines in HZ incidence among children <10 years of age continued through 2010 and among the 10- to 19-year olds, the increase reported through 2006 did not continue further and lower rates than in 2006 were observed through 2010. Expand
Incidence of Herpes Zoster Among Children Vaccinated With Varicella Vaccine in a Prepaid Health Care Plan in the United States, 2002–2008
TLDR
It is demonstrated that diagnosed HZ is rare among children following varicella vaccine, despite the small numbers, and the roles of delayed vaccination, severe asthma, and development disorders warrant further investigation. Expand
Population-based incidence of herpes zoster after introduction of a publicly funded varicella vaccination program.
TLDR
In the early post-varicella vaccination period, incidence rates of medically attended herpes zoster did not increase for the overall population and decreased moderately for children 9 years and younger, the age group targeted for varicella vaccinations. Expand
Herpes Zoster in a Partially Vaccinated Pediatric Population in Central Israel
TLDR
The epidemiology of HZ seems to be changing in a population with partial varicella vaccination rate, and the results may suggest that children who contracted chicken pox in their first year of life may benefit from varICElla vaccination. Expand
Incidence and clinical characteristics of herpes zoster among children in the varicella vaccine era, 2005-2009.
TLDR
HZ incidence in vaccinated children was 79% lower than in unvaccinated children, and half of HZ cases were due to wild-type VZV, which is similar to vaccine-strain herpes zoster. Expand
The incidence of herpes zoster.
TLDR
The recorded incidence of herpes zoster was 64% higher than that reported 30 years ago; the age-standardized rate was more than twofold higher and immunosuppressive conditions had little impact on overall incidence, although they were strongly associated with early recurrences. Expand
Epidemiology of herpes zoster in children and adolescents: a population-based study.
TLDR
Medical records were reviewed for all 173 cases of herpes zoster diagnosed among residents of Rochester, Minnesota, less than 20 years of age during the period 1960 through 1981, and chickenpox in the first year of life was found to be a risk factor for childhood zoster. Expand
Herpes zoster in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The probability of postherpetic neuralgia in children and adolescents with herpes zoster is extremely low and it is seldom associated with undiagnosed malignancy in the primary care setting. Expand
