Question: 

I am a 68 year old healthy female who has celiac disease as well as being lactose intolerant. Should I be concerned about receiving the shingles vaccine?

Answer: 

In order to assess your eligibility for the shingles vaccine (if you can safely get this vaccine), please contact your immunizing health care provider (public health nurse, physician or pharmacist).
