I was wondering if anyone knew if having an implanted nerve stimulator (for PHN) could be the cause of me breaking out with shingles at least every six weeks?

I am suppose to be shingles free for six weeks then I can get the vaccine, this time was four days short!!!

I changed positions and now work with patients that immunosuppressed so I am off of work.

The area is scabbed over now and my doctor said I can return but I would like to go ahead and take the vaccine and then I have to be off work 2-6 weeks because it is a live virus.

Anyone help me?????
