This is very interesting information! My husband got the vaccine but I did not. I am not in the age group where they recommend getting a shingles vaccine but I am wondering if I would qualify to get it because of my transplant. I hear shingles is terrible. Do you know anything else about the rules around this?

@jolinda it was recommended for my husband to get one because he had a transplant. Our insurance agreed to cover it even though he is under 60. I think you should check into it. Just a heads up that the shots really hurt.

I've heard that having shingles is really terrible, too. I will definitely get the shot when I am old enough.

thanks for your thoughts. I will ask.
