@eddiew - It's not available on the NHS and you have to get referred by your GP if you want to do it privately... which is not always straight forward.
Thanks everyone :-)
Both my older two had a mild case last year. One one week, one the following
The only difference is that by vaccinating against it, your child can avoid the discomfort of the outbreak itself. The likelihood of developing Shingles later in life is no higher or lower based on how you encountered the virus (via vaccine or naturally). You don't magically develope stronger antibodies via vaccination, hahaha.
So... Read up. What you're introducing in the vaccine is a weak version that doesn't give varicella zoster the room it needs to be shingles later.
But I think we're getting off topic.
Huh. Get the damn vaccine so my great grandkids don't need to hear me complaining about a polio outbreak in 45 years.
I wonder, in the UK, does the health system provide the shingles vaccine? If so, it's just silly to NOT provide the chicken pox vaccine, because you don't need both - they could give kids the chicken pox vaccine and then won't have to give the shingles vaccine to them decades later...
Thanks again to all!
