Shingles vaccination

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

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 diseases...so guess he's safe. I remember my dad having shingles and how painful they were.
Just thought I'd pass along info......
