What is that aphorism about barn doors and horses?

.....most vaccines are for prevention.....that said.......when I googled, it said it can't help now but it may help to prevent future occurrences......wait until this episode is over first [ don't get vaccine now ]........

Her immune system is getting plenty of exposure to the virus that is causing her problems. Let her get the treatment first, and she can think about getting the vaccine sometime later.

I thought I heard you could get the shingles vaccine with shingles for help. I would do some personal research. I got the shot years ago when it first came out. Haven't done the current two shot dealie.

I agree with samintx, the vaccine apparently will help even if you are experiencing shingles. But better had she gotten the vaccine in the past. What is wrong with people that they don’t get vaccinated?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

If you got the single shot previously, it is definitely advised that you get the new 2 shot series. Evidently the single has a 10 year efficacy limit - I actually got a mild case 9 years post shot. Mild case was bad enough. It is advised to wait 6 months post disease to get the new vaccine.
