Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

In general, a person needs to wait until all the symptoms of shingles have disappeared before getting a shingles vaccination and a person can get this vaccination after having shingles.

However, a doctor should be consulted first if there are any concerns, particularly when the patient is a child.
