Jun 1, 2021, 12:08 PM

Anyone who has had chickenpox in the past can develop shingles. Those most at risk for getting shingles are adults 50 years and older, and individuals who are immunocompromised due to neurological disorders, certain infectious illnesses and rheumatologic diseases. It is uncommon for shingles to affect children.
