Hi Billie: Thank You for asking how I am doing. I have been okay. The reason I asked about the Shingles Vaccine is because it has become a leading topic lately with so many cases popping up. I am not planning on getting one, even though I know I do not have a compromised immune sytem at this point. I did start to do the Pneumonia Vaccine after having Pneumonia twice. I also do the FLU shot each year, and I have not been sick now for a few years. Not sure if the vaccine helped or I just was not exposed to some of these viruses. The one year when I got the Pneumonia shot and the Flu Shot together I was deathly sick, you might remember that.
Funny that you should mention being immuned to childhood diseases. When my daughter was very young, and all her friends were getting chicken pox, measles, and mumps etc. She never got them. She even slept in the same bed with a little friend of hers at a sleepover. The kids who were at the sleepover got the chicken pox, but my daughter did not. They did a blood test on her at some point to check her immunity, and told her she was immune to these diseases.
I never heard of it, but she is now going to be 39. She has not gotten any of this stuff Thank God.
Just thought I would see what others felt on this question.
