Padfoot : xnine, my arm hurt for days after both shingles shots. But, better than having shingles! Glad you got the vaccine. Jun 09, 2020
lovely : Hope you will feel better soon. Best wishes and stay safe. Jun 09, 2020
kmedup : I think the shingles vaccine is next on my list to get. My sister Red Hatter just went through shingles so I need to get my act together while I working from home. Thanks for this post. Karen Jun 09, 2020
Bill : I was lucky, as they give the shingles vaccine at the same time as the flu vaccine and I had very little adverse reaction. I hope you make a speedy recovery. Best wishes Bill Jun 09, 2020
w30bob : Ahhh....shingles! My Mom got them bad 2 years ago and still has permanent nerve damage around one of her eyes that drives her nuts. I had to wait for the dead vaccine to become available, as the first live version wasn't compatible with the Humira I stick in my leg every 10 days. And good thing because the second dead version works way better than the live version. But my arm hurt like hell for a week after the first shot. The second shot didn't bother me at all. Sure hope you feel better soon X! regards, bob Jun 10, 2020
Penguins7 : Hi Xnine, Good call on getting the shingles shots. I got mine last year and felt very ill for a few days. Can't imagine getting those around my stoma area. Stay well. Penguins7 Jun 10, 2020
xnine : OK I am good Jun 11, 2020
Puppyluv56 : Never had the chicken pocks! Supposedly, you have to have them before you can get the Shingles! Hope that holds true! Jul 01, 2020
