Anyone who has had chicken pox carries the shingles virus for the rest of their lives.
Mrs Media and I both got the shingles vax years ago. About 18 months ago, I got the newer Shingrix vaccine (it comes in two stages, a few months apart.) She did not.
In January of last year, she had a shingles outbreak. It started on her scalp over her right eye and ran backwards over her head and then started creeping its way down her forehead towards her eye, which is quite dangerous and may even cause blindness if not caught in time.
It lasted at a very painful level for a couple of weeks; she got medication right away, so that was a good thing.
Once the shingles retreated, which took several months (even now she will occasionally get a twitch), she got the newer Shingrix vaccine. We were unaware that the older vaccine wears off after about 15-20 years. The newer vaccine is a "must have" treatment. As soon as you can, get it.
Best wishes in the meantime for full remission.
