Shingles, or herpes zoster, can afflict anyone who has had chickenpox. Both are caused by the varicella zoster virus. It is possible that shingles develops in people who received the chickenpox vaccine, which contains a live attenuated form of the virus. The latest science shows that we keep our natural immunity to the shingles by being re-exposed as adults to chickenpox in children. With the un-natural suppression of chicken pox in children comes a weak immune system and – shingles. We need some old-fashioned chickenpox parties my peeps! Not more vaccines.
