    I think they say you have to get the Tdap unless babies have had theirs which can't happen until they are 2-3 months.

    As someone who got chicken pox at age 30 (20ish years ago, about 2 years after the vaccine for chicken pox became available) I hope you've had the chicken pox vaccine. By far I've never been sicker. And to be able to not have to worry about ever getting shingles would have been awesome. But no, I'll be going for the second shingles shot in a couple of weeks because I hadn't heard that there was a chicken pox vaccine until after it was too late.

    I had chicken pox. I had shingles. 1 in 3 people who get shingles get it again. Iím getting the vaccine! Shingles - it felt as if I had nests of electric eels eating me from inside. To say it hurts us an understatement. Throw in constant electric shock sensations, insomnia for the duration, and muscle twitches.

    Lead me to the person with the ampoules and the needle!
