 There  is a new vaccine called  “Zostavax” which  limits the severity of shingles.  Also of note if you are diagnosed with shingles (which looks like chicken pox and is extremely painful) seek immediate medical attention.  The drug Valacyclovir 500 mg taken 3 times per day will stop the severity immediately but it must be started within 72 hours.
