flickering rear tailight

hey, i've got a left rear taillight on my 07 yaris sedan that randomly goes out while driving. sometimes if i wiggle the bulb around i can get it to light back up, but eventually something will make it go out again.

this is obviously dangerous and i've already been stopped by the police once for a bad taillight(i bought a new bulb) so i was curious if anyone had any ideas?
thanks!

Loose connection somewhere. Most likely the socket since wiggling it sometimes corrects the problem.

^thanks! Is a bulb socket something I can pick up at the auto parts store or dealer only? Also, I know nothing about wiring so I'm hoping it's plug-and-play! If not I guess it's off to the dealer for more work(I got a service coupon with the purchase of my Camry). I know it's not the bulb itself because that's already been replaced.
