I am wondering if you have a compromised immune system because you have a TBI?

My doctor refused to give me a shingles vaccine because I don’t have a compromised immune system and I am not old enough. I am 55 and have had a TBI for 32 years. What do you think?

Does anyone notice a decrease in immune systems in survivors?

My husband used to NEVER get sick and if he did he could push through it. Now he gets sick all the time and it’s always way worse than if anyone else in the house gets sick. I don’t know if it’s related to the brain injury (lack of sleep, lack of ability to fight off germs as well, etc), the fact that we have kids in school now, or a combination of both.
