Most definitely.  I was vaccinated several years ago but definitely want the new vaccine.  My mother and my son had shingles.  I will do everything I can to keep from getting it.

I was unable to get shingle vaccination, was not recommended for anyone who has had chemo. I received chemo treatment for non-hogdkins lymphoma which is in remission. Does the new vaccine adhere to the same warning? Would appreciate an answer.

YES!!! I am so happy they lowered the age to 50, thank God! I am 53 and have several other chronic conditions so getting shingles on top of those would probably put me in my grave

 I would consider having another shingles shot. I have seen the outcome of what shingles can do. I believe I had a shot about 3 years ago.

My son is only 42 and has been diaginoused with shingles.  He gets it at least once a year for the last 3 years with no relief.  They say once you have had it, that the vaccine is no good....besides the fact that he is so young.  Is there anything in the works or system that can help him?  He has two young children and, of course, is still working.  He gets so miserable!  The only things my He has found that gives him so relief is to ice it.  And he has to be home to do that and it doesn’t last long.  As a mom, I would do anything to try and help him.

If a person has already had a case of shingles,  should they take the vaccine?
