I had it in my early 50's. My wife hasn't had it yet, but her employer is not covering it if you are under 60.

I got it at a store. I think it cost $15-25. For goodness sake, some things are worth spending the bucks for.
I just had it last December, took me 6 weeks to recover (2 of which were figuring out what the heck I had).
The problem with the vaccine, is if you are under 60 you need a doctor’s prescription to get it. I’m just over 40. The CDC doesn’t really want to give to people younger than 60, basically due to the effectiveness of the shot.
The problem, is that once you’ve recovered from the boil-like blisters, pain, and itching... there is phantom neuropathy (sp?) that is residual in the affected areas. I’m going for a doctor’s visit in the AM to see if I can get the shot, because that helps eliminate the pain.
Chicken Pox, who knew that all those chicken pox play dates so many years ago, would come back to all of us with a vengeance?
I actually asked if I could get one if I paid for it. They said no. My doctor said no too. Not til 60. Of course my cousin had them at 55. Lol
