Question: 

Hello, I had herpes zoster vaccine about 8 years ago, age 53, now 61...do I need booster or another vaccine for continued protection against shingles? Unknown childhood chickenpox.

Answer: 

There is currently no recommendation for booster doses of the shingles vaccine (only one dose of the vaccine is currently recommended). The efficacy of protection has not been assessed beyond 7 years and it is not known if booster doses of vaccine are beneficial. This is an area of ongoing research. 

You can discuss this further with your health care provider.
