Your immune system has a ton of reserve capacity to respond to various challenges (with varying degrees of effectiveness for any particular case) so there's no reason I know of to avoid getting Shingrix if you're healthy or have just a minor illness.

I had round two of Shingrix the other day, administered by the nice pharmacy worker at our local Large Predatory Bird Supermarket.* Similar to the first time, I experienced 12-24 hours of feeling grunged out but bounced back just fine.

It'd be nice if getting vaccinated offered nonspecific protection against coronavirus, but I've heard zero evidence for that.

*home of several nice pharmacy employees and one total asshole.
