Vaccines basically just give a light case, so light that it usually doesn't even register with symptoms. So, why couldn't an adult get shingles if they've been vaccinated against chicken pox?

i would suppose someone who got vaccinated still could get shingles.
However, Esster was saying that her magical friend had never gotten pox as a child but then still got shingles, no vaccines involved.
