My neighbor told me her doctor recommended Zostovax shot to prevent shingles in those of us over 60. He said he took it himself. The shot costs $250. at ofc., but neighbor found one of our grocery store pharmacies giving it for $200. Her husband's insurance covered his, hers didn't. They both took the shot. I waasn't even aware they had a shot for it. Guess I'm going to get one. DH has never had mumps, measles, or any childhood guess he's safe. I remember my dad having shingles and how painful they were.
Just thought I'd pass along info...
