    Do I need Chicken Pox and Shingles Vaccines?

    As a child I never got Chicken pox. I recently got a blood test that confirmed I had no antibodies for varicella. Do I need to get both the chicken pox and Shingles Vaccines? Can I get them both at the same time?

    Same situation as you... at age 50 I got the vaccines again... its better than getting Shingles, which is a painful adult form of chicken pox.

    So did you need to get both Chicken pox and shingles vaccinations? Can you get them at the same time?
