I hope all of us oldies but goodies are doing well.
A couple of my friends recently had shingles and I'm wondering if any of you had the shingles vaccine, and, if so, how did it go? My neuro says to go ahead and get one but I've been a little hesitant because it's a live virus (and apparently only 50% effective per my neuro). Your experiences or feedback on the topic are welcome.

I hope it helps answer most of the questions that come up about this particular vaccine. I always get every vaccine -- especially the yearly flu vaccine -- but I've been hesitant to go for the shingles vaccine.
Thanks so much for the link to all that info about the shingles vaccine. It is a comprehensive overview and puts it into some perspective. I'm still "considering" it.
Thanks for the "good luck" wishes. If I plunge ahead I'll be sure to let everyone know what happens....
All the best to you too...
