I've had shingles twice already, the second episode a year after getting the vaccine. I now take 500 mg valacyclovir as a preventive. I'd hate to have it resurface in my CNS, but I saw one article suggesting herpes zoster wasn't normally found in the brain like simplex. My doc thinks I should get another vaccine, but my mast cell symptoms were terrible for about four months after the first. Although other things could have caused that it makes me nervous and I can't decide whether to get the vaccine again. I guess several months excited mast cells isn't as bad as AD! I wonder why they don't include zoster in these studies.
