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
