Is the Shingles vaccine only once, or do you have to get re-immunized? And if so, how often is immunization required ? Thanks
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.
