Absolutely!  I have had shingles and it was the most painful thing I have ever experienced.  2 shots about a month apart.  Call your pharmacist for price or check your insurance coverage.

I had shingles a few years back and the three most painful things I have had in my life are having my first child, passing a kidney stone, and shingles. If you do get shingles you will really really be sorry you didn't take the shot. Hope you will change your mind.

Yes, and recommended by my physician - have history of skin issues since teens and father had a terrible case of this years ago. BUT I'm in the donut hole and cannot afford another $200 or more bill.

With Medicare, it was $45 per dose - 2 doses 6 month apart.

Yes. My sister, my husband, and my 50 year old daughter all got Shingles last year. None were exposed to each other since they all live in different cities or states.

ABSOLUTELY YES.   Immunizations are extremely important for adults as well as children and adolesents. As an RN I have encountered patients and friends with shingles.  NO THANKS.
