How long is a shingle vaccine good for?

I received a shingles vaccine 4 and a half years ago. I’m in my late 50s. How long does this shingle vaccine protect me and, do I need another shingles vaccine in the future?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Check with your physician but one shingles vaccine should protect you for life.
