The shingles vaccine is a live virus vaccine unlike the Flu vaccine which is a dead virus vaccine. I have heard that this vaccine is highly recommended if you have ever had Chicken Pox, you are over age 50 and especially over age 60, and you are diabetic. I have have seen some people suffer terribly with Shingles and I definitely want to avoid it. A live virus vaccine concerns me! Any info, exprience, and opinions would be appreciated.
