Sometimes the shot causes shingles.

Various medical websites say it doesn't cause shingles but may cause symptoms and doesn't protect 100% so people with the shot can still get shingles.

"Some people report a chickenpox-like rash after getting the shingles vaccine. Although some people will develop shingles despite vaccination, the vaccine may reduce the severity and duration of it. "

"Does the shingles vaccines cause shingles? No. Since it only reduces your risk of developing shingles by 51% and the duration of protection is about 5 years, there is certainly a chance that you could get shingles even after having the vaccine, but the shingles vaccine doesn’t actually cause shingles."
