(as far as reactions to those original shots - bit sore arm, nothing else)
I was told you're supposed to get the booster 6 months after the first dose. Ask your doctor if, after 7 years, you need to start over with another "first" dose followed by the booster.

The initial vaccination is two shots, given 2-6 months apart. The second shot isn't considered a booster. But in looking it up, I came upon this:


"The shingles vaccine is a safe and effective tool that can help prevent the condition in eligible adults. After the vaccine, a person’s immunity stays strong for at least 7 years."

I think mine might be 6 years ago or so. I wonder if the booster is to make it so you don't need another 2-shot round?

So far no boosters are recommended.
