PS. There is a shingles vaccine now, I've meant to ask my rheumy about
it next time I visit.
It's recommended for people over a certain age -- 65? -- but with all the strange fevers, etc we Lupies have (that often set off my fever blisters, herpes simplex 1, very similar to the shingles virus) -- I'd like to get the vaccine now, if they'll let me do it. If it's a live vaccine, we Lupies may not be allowed!!
