Immunization for shingles question
01strawberry posted:
I had shingles when I was 16 years old. I am now 53. I keep hearing people say that older people need to be immunizied. A doctor told me when I was young that I wouldn't get the shingles again, since I had when I was young. Is this still true or does anyone really have an answer to this? Do I need a shot or not?
