I have had shingles disease. Do I still need to get the vaccine?
The Shingrix vaccine is recommended for adults 50 years of age and older, including those who have had shingles disease. You should wait at least 1 year before getting the vaccine after having shingles.
If you had shingles in the past, getting the vaccine can help prevent future occurrences of the disease.
