Yeah, trust me, go get both of your Shingrex shingles vaccine shots. Mom is mostly over her bout of it from december, but she still having issues with keeping her eye open yet.Fmla doesn't have anything to do with insurance. It does protect you from negative effects of having to take time off due to personal illness. An employer can not hold fmla time off against your attendance, nor can they terminate you. It is limited to a max of 12 weeks off in a year. I have had to use it for my own surgery and illness in the past. (Had shingles on my face- worst ever) as well as for both of my parents. It has saved my job multiple times.
