If you ever had chicken pox you won't get it again. But if you never got the vaccine and you never had the chicken pox you need to get it.


Shell
Probably, just to be safe.

NO! Don't get a shingles vaccine. Get a Chicken pox vaccine ( If there is one? Anyone know for sure? ) Anyway, shingles is teh chicken pox virus, in a "comatose" form. it will re activate at random.

Summary.
Get a chicken pox vaccine. Not a shingles one.
If there isn't one, drink you're vitam C and eat healthy.

No, you do not need to because you did not have the chickenpox.. Only people who have had the chickenpox get shingles....

If you have not had chickenpox and you are 73 years of age I must imagine you have a history of the disease that you are not aware of. If that is the case, you are eligible for a Herpes Zoster vaccine but I would not recommend it even though that is what I do every day and have done every day since the vaccine was made available to the public.

Do you plan to travel to places with chickenpox outbreaks? If not, I would not worry about getting the shot. Have you had children or grandchildren with chickenpox? If you were exposed and did not catch chickenpox you were probably immune.

I agree, if you think there is a chance you are susceptible you should talk it over with your private physician and get his/her opinion on the matter.
