Should a person with Epstein Barr virus not take the Shingles vaccine?

Posted by VRAYZ

I have had reoccurring shingles & vertigo every couple of months; since having the shingles vaccine a year ago.  I am 52 yrs. old and have had Epstein Barr; and a lowered immunity,  for 30 yrs. and had full blown chicken pox 15 yrs. ago.  prior to the vaccine I had shingles once. 

What can  I do, to sop the reoccurrances.  This last case when I stopped taking acyclovir, a few days later it returned & I took another course of acyclovir, when I stopped taking it again; got vertigo a few days later.  I've been going through this for the last 1 1/2 mos.  I'm still fatigued & slightly off balance and nausious.
