Shingles Vaccine
I have Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and Stage IIIC Ovarian Cancer. I am afraid of getting shingles because I had the Chicken Pox twice. I will talk to my Doctors of course. In general can people like me get the vaccine? Also is it true you can still get Shingles only its milder?

I am not sure I can reasonably answer your question.  You should ask your MS physician if he/she thinks that the shingles vaccine is appropriate.  With Stage IIIC OC, this should not be your primary health concern.
