SHINGLES VACCINE / FLU SHOTS

I had chicken pox so I did get the shingle vaccine!  Why? There is a high correlation between chicken pox and getting shingles as the Merck ads on TV very strongly show. The vaccine is expensive so shop around. I also saw the pain my dad was in, a Purple Heart recipient, a street kid from Brooklyn and he told me it was the worst pain he has ever experienced!

I did not get the flu vaccine! Never have. Rolling the dice? Lucky? Maybe! I eat well, take vitamins, take an aspirin a day, exercise and  most important-I am a prolific hand washer! The very last exercise I do at the gym is washing my hands with soap and hot water! I can't remember the last time I had the flu or a bad cold. Speak to your doctor! If your 60, I am 65 they will probably recommend the vaccine.
