Can vaccinated children get shingles?

Patient: My husband has developed a case of shingles. Our children have both had the chicken pox vaccine and not the disease. Can the children still develop shingles?

Doctor: In order to develop shingles one has to have had chicken pox in the past. Since your children have had the vaccine the e chances of them getting infected are next to nil.  I would advice you not to worry about it. All the best.
