Who should get the shingles vaccine?

Jun 1, 2021, 12:10 PM

Adults who are 50 years and older should get the shingles vaccine. This includes people who already received a dose of the older shingles vaccine, Zostavax; have a history of shingles or other chronic medical conditions; do not have a known history of chickenpox; or have mild immune suppression. Please talk to your doctor if you have questions on whether or not you should be vaccinated.
