Shingles Vaccination....

If your over the age of 60 you definitely want to get a Shingles Vaccination. The cost of the shot is $200 without insurance but I can guarantee you that after spending three months in bed in pain you will see this as a bargain after you see someone having the disease. Think of it as if someone took an electric sandbelt tool and ran it across your body. That your body proceeds to produce infectous welt and your subject to constant itching and pain. That at best, the only available medications can only ease some of the pain. How long you have the disease will vary between individuals but after 60 it is not uncommon to last months to even years. Your chance of getting the disease between 60 and 85 is 50%.
