Letter to the editor | Guard against shingles

July 2, 2013 

People need to understand the importance of getting the shingles shot.

Any person who has had chickenpox is at risk of getting the shingles virus.

In March, I got shingles in my eye. This has been a very painful experience. I am still suffering the effects, which include double vision and pain in my eye.

Getting the shot to prevent an outbreak of shingles is in everyone’s best interest. I hope this letter will prevent at least one person from getting shingles.
