1 doctor agrees

In brief: ??zoster vac ??

In kids, 1 dose of chickenpox vaccine protects 90% & with 2 doses ~100%, if you only got one i would get a second .
If you are over 50 and received the zoster vaccine to prevent shingles, that vaccine is of very high potency and should cover for both CP and shingles.
