    You should be safe enough if you've had it, you'll have antibodies. You can get shingles but you'd need to be very run down for that to happen. (Usually happens in later life!)

    It's very unusual to get it twice, but I did!!! lol
    When I was a few months old, then again when I was about 3. And then... when I was 7... I had shingles as well!!!
    Fingers crossed I have lots of antibodies now! :)
    You should be fine as long as your immune system's quite strong.
