I'm not 50 or older. I've had chronic cases of shingles for the last 17 years. Can I still get the vaccine ?

In brief: Never heard of this

I would first go to a dermatologist and or infectious disease specialist.
I have never heard of this happening.If true, you have a worrisome immune system.I would only get a living vaccine like the zoster vaccine after you have been cleared to do so, otherwise you may face significant complications. Not all blister producing disorders are shingles.
