HERPES viruses include several families of “omnipresent” infectious agents, a euphemism for “….these babies just won’t go away!” From HSV 1 to Herpes Zoster (Shingles) these family members can range from very annoying to a downright nightmare. A vaccine for shingles is now available, and strongly recommended for “seniors” over 50. Run, don't walk - you might even wear this stunning design to the vaccination celebration. Microscopic images courtesy of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), Atlanta, GA. The name of the design is positioned discreetly on scarf border (inconspicuous, when worn).
