Shingles, also called herpes zoster, is a painful rash disease. Complications from shingles can include severe nerve pain, called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), which can last for months or years after the rash goes away. Shingles is caused by the varicella zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox.
If you’ve had chickenpox, you can get shingles. Almost 1 in 3 people in the United States will develop shingles in their lifetime. You can get shingles at any age, but it’s more common (and more likely to be severe) in older adults.
The CDC recommends that healthy adults 50 years of age and older get two doses of the shingles vaccine, called Shingrix (recombinant zoster vaccine), separated by 2-6 months. Individuals 19 years or older who have a weakened immune system may also receive two doses of Shingrix.
