Yes, I had one a year and a half ago. My doctor recommended it.
It's a live virus, which means you get the antibodies by your immune system fighting the virus. So, if you're on immunosuppressants, it's a definite no-no. At the time, I was on plaquenil only, which didn't seem to be a problem. Several months later, I went on cellcept and then would not have been able to take the vaccine.
The statistics show that it prevents 50-70% of outbreaks and reduces the severity of remaining outbreaks, and reduces the chance of post-shingles chronic pain.
My immune system was/is fairly strong and I had no problem with the vaccine. I was happy I was able to get the vaccine before I was no longer able to, as my mother and sister have had terrible outbreaks. I would suggest anyone considering it check with their rheumy about their individual situation. My insurance paid for it as preventive care, as I was over 60 yo.
