I had shingles a couple of months ago when can i get the shot

This is a car forum, but let me help you with a google search finding:

If you had shingles in the past, you can get Shingrix to help prevent future occurrences of the disease. There is no specific length of time that you need to wait after having shingles before you can receive Shingrix, but generally you should make sure the shingles rash has gone away before getting vaccinated.

I had the shingles vaccine when it first came out years ago. Do I need another one

If you use https://www.google.com to search information, you will learn an estimate of 5 years for the original shingles vaccine. There is a newer vaccine that is better than the original and is recommended.

Where can I get the new shingle shot

Family doctor or general practitioner and in some cases a pharmacist.

Shingles vaccine, like the flu vaccine, is recommended for "at risk" groups - the elderly, pregnant women, diabetics and so forth, so the family doctor would be the first place to enquire.

How can I treat shingles?

The best treatment for shingles will be prescription antivirals. There isn't any over the counter remedies that help very much. Hydrocortisone may a little but not significant. Mostly you have to wait them out. Consider a shingles vaccine to prevent future outbreaks.

I have itchy spots on many parts of my body. Could this be a reaction to the shingles vaccination which I had almost 2 weeks ago?

Hello Friend,
Here is a picture of shingles just to see if those itchy spots on your body can be shingles.
shingles-2-l0kpbnxoziwwkysmgfhgmd4c-5-1.jpg One of the distinguishing hallmark of shingles is that it has the pattern of following a line covered on your body by its accompanying spinal nerve. Oh shingles, how clever of you to have a pathway!
Now given the nature of vaccinations, I believe if people had any idea of what was being injecting into those immunizations they would be mortified, after all that is one way to build your immunity by injecting yourself with the very thing you're building defenses against. There are other healthier, safer ways to build your immunity. Case in point, I am a TRUE believer that if our immune systems were strong enough in the first place there would be no need for vaccinations.

Mayo clinic website

Yes and no, you are actively shedding the varicella zoster virus (chickenpox). Shingles is a secondary infection from chickenpox. You can not give someone shingles but can spread the virus. The virus is dormant and then pops out again years later as shingles. You would want to avoid young children who have not been vaccinated.
