Can you get shingles from contact with someone who was immunized against chickenpox? Or from contact with someone with chickenpox disease?

Question: 

Can you get shingles from contact with someone who was immunized with the chickenpox (varicella) vaccine? Or from contact with someone with chickenpox disease?   

Answer: 

No.  You cannot get shingles from another person. Shingles is caused by a reactivation of the varicella zoster virus (the same virus that causes chickenpox). When a person is first infected with the varicella-zoster virus, they get chickenpox. After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus remains dormant (inactive) in the body.  For reasons that are not fully known, the virus can become active again later in life, causing shingles.
