“Do I need the shingles vaccine? A doctor explains,” by James C. Salwitz, MD, was published recently on KevinMD. The short answer is yes, you need a shingles vaccine if you are 60 years old or older.
Dr. Salwitz has written an excellent explanation of why you should have the shingles vaccine. I hope you enjoy it and will join me as one of the ever growing group of vaccinated individuals.
The shingles vaccine is expensive. Many insurers are now covering its cost. Please check with your insurer to see if you have coverage. Even if you don’t, you need this vaccine! Be Happy. Be Wellthy!
