Shooting for that shingles shot

People who are 50 and older can ask their health care providers or pharmacies about the newer shingles vaccine Shingrix, despite lingering supply delays. If you’ve had chicken pox, you have a 1 in 3 chance of getting the painful condition with skin rashes, blisters and potentially long-term nerve pain. Approved in late 2017, Shingrix offers more than 90 percent protection, the CDC says.
