We hear a lot about the flu shot this time of year, but folks at one local medical office say that's not the only vaccine you should remember.
This may also be a good time to think about the shingles vaccine. This information comes from the folks at Parkview Family Medicine in Pueblo.
Shingles is caused by the same virus as chicken pox. After you've had it, the virus can "hide" in your body for decades and can become reactivated later in life.
It's most common in people over the age of 50 and those with weakened immune systems. The vaccine is recommended for adults over the age of 60 and those with weakened immune systems. Just talk to your doctor.
