If its a live virus vaccine its probably a good idea. Your immunity can be lowered when on Cimzia.

How far do I need to keep away and for how long.
My boss is getting a shingles vaccine.

I wouldn't get real close to your boss. I'm not sure about the virus when its in the vaccine, but I know that varicella zoster, the virus that causes shingles isn't spread by breathing it. You have to touch something with fluid from the blisters. I do need to find this out tho, I'm going to get one soon myself. I'm going to the pharmacy tomorrow, I'll see what I can find out there.
