As a nurse, I have been getting the flu shot for the last 30 years. Required from some of my employers UNLESS you have a religious or medical reason (allergy to any of the ingredients in the vaccine). I'm not old enough to get the pneumo vax or the shingles vax. But, I have taken care of patients who have had the shingles who were in extreme pain....crying and screaming at the pain. If you can prevent yourself from getting the shingles, do whatever you can to do it!
