I was diagnosed January 23, 2012 with CLL at age 52. I have no signs or symptoms and was told I was stage 0. 

The first thing my oncologist told me was to NEVER get the SHINGLE SHOT!

I don't remember the reason because I was still getting over the shock of being told I had CLL.

All I remember hearing was NO SHINGLE SHOT!

I did not read anyone else mentioning this so thought I would speak up. Please ask your oncologist .

I was told because it is a live vaccine
