We strongly recommend this vaccine. If you live long enough, you have an excellent chance of developing shingles, and shingles can be miserable.
The vaccine is even useful if you have already had shingles because it is possible to have two or three episodes in your life. The vaccine is effective and has very few side effects. When you play with the numbers, you see that you would need to vaccinate only seven sixty-year-old adults to prevent one case of shingles over the next thirty years of their lives.
