Letter to the editor | Guard against shingles

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.
