I am still dealing with this case of shingles that started maybe 10 days ago. Really hurts.
There is a vaccine, but most people don't get it until they turn 60, because until then they have to pay out of pocket for it.
I wish I had done it. $200 or whatever to avoid this amount of pain and distress (and the consequent burden to caregivers) strikes me as the bargain of all time.
