I would think that a shingles shot is not necessary. I got a case of shingles after I backpacked alone through 10 countries in Europe for six weeks. They stole my pack in Nice, France after the first week so I did the rest with a large handbag. The stress brought on shingles when I got home. I took Vitamin C and they were gone in a few days. Friends of mine have followed this and had the same good results that I did. The vitamin C supports the white blood cells and they fight the virus. Simple. So why bother with getting a shingles vaccine.
