Shingles Contagious?

My boyfriend had really bad shingles and ended up in his blood stream and he had a stroke b/c of this a few months ago. His doctor told him today he thinks they are coming back b/c of the bumps on the back of his thighs.

My question is A) Are they contagious? I have never had the chicken pox and ended up getting vacinated with the adult vacination about 12 years ago. So can I get the shingles from him? I have Hoshimoto's Autoimmune Disease so of course I'm scared to catch anything due to the Autoimmune situation.
