Yes, someone with shingles can pass on shingles to someone.  My mom  
didn't realize she had shingles and had blisters on her back.  My dad  
got shingles from rubbing something on her back when he touched the  
blisters trying to help her.

Yup - someone who has shingles is most definitely contagious for chicken
pox.  My father-in-law gave it to his two grandchildren.  My son had a
particularly nasty case of the pox.  So father-in-law was treated for
his shingles and when the kids got sick about 10 days later, he moved in
with us for about 3 weeks to help take care of them.  Suitable pay back,
we thought .  My husband immediately got to the doc for a chicken
pox vaccine.  I'm glad he did, since our son was really sick.
