Can I catch shingles from someone else?

Adult Chicken Pox

Shingles (Varicella Zoster Virus) outbreaks are not "caught" from other people. Coming into contact with someone who has shingles will not cause you to "catch" a case of shingles, although if you have never had chickenpox before, you might have a small risk of developing that condition.
