Shingles Recurrence

I got shingles when I was 15, about 7 1/2 years ago. From what I have heard and read about shingles you can get it about every 20 to 30 years. So it is likely I will get it again. Since I have already had it can I get the shingles vaccine (so I wont get it again) or since I already had it does it take me out as a canidate for the vaccine?
