Yes, father had shingles and I've had cp and measles. I currently have prugia nodularis, which is very painful (skin lesions). Would take but last time I looked, it was over $200.

Yes. My husband and I are waiting for the vaccine to be available. He is 75 and I am 73. No way do we want shingles.

The new one (Shingrix) is not a live vaccine like Zostavax (older one).  So maybe, talk to your doctor.

Shingle shots are not recommended for anyone who has had chemo or has an auto-immune disease.  I have had chemo plud an auto-immune disease.

I had the shingles in May 2002, was left with post ther-petic neuralgia. The pain 

has not lessened over the years. I do recommend the shot

No, had the old shot and had eye had problems, and my husband did too. Why would you give someone a vaccine knowing it could hurt their eyes? That is crazy. Dianna Blumrick

I have had the old shot and have had eye problems & so has my husband. If this the case, no I would not get the new shot. I think you are crazy to even suggest that we do. Dianna Blumrick
