In brief: Yes
But, it may not be covered by insurance.
Many insurers cover it starting at age 60. I could help boost your immunity and is probably worth the expense (about $250). Not studied for younger or middle aged adults yet, since most shingles occurs in th elderly, so they are the group for which the vaccine was targeted.
