Shingles

I was thinking of getting the jab and wondered how many of you had had the vaccine, what it was like, after effects etc.

Had it the other month after a few years of seeking it before I hit the magic 80 when they say that it is no longer on offer.. Should have checked the syringe was fulll and that she actually stuck it in my arm as didn't feel a thing or notice anything after it was done.

Had it last year with the pneumonia jab. The Doc asked if I would like them. Also didn't feel a thing. After effects included feeling 20 years younger and more viral , my hair growing back and I was able to run faster and longer, other than that nothing to fear.

Must be better than getting Shingles. My wife suffered for 6 weeks and still has itchy red blotches.

Both Chris and I can't remember! Chris has had shingles in the past so not sure if they still give it? When Chris had shingles I had some very mild symptoms that I would probably have not noticed if he hadn't been diagnosed with it.

Had the jabs ( you need 2 with 3 months between) after Rays wife and someone on another forum had shingles last year. As with all inoculations I have there were no after effects.

I hope you´re all getting 2 jabs.

What Everyone Should Know about the Shingles Vaccine (Shingrix)
Shingles vaccination is the only way to protect against shingles and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the most common complication from shingles. CDC recommends that healthy adults 50 years and older get two doses of the shingles vaccine called Shingrix (recombinant zoster vaccine), separated by 2 to 6 months, to prevent shingles and the complications from the disease. Your doctor or pharmacist can give you Shingrix as a shot in your upper arm.

Ha ha yes the jab. Interestingly no mention of 2 jabs by my surgery. Will ask when called for my Flu & Covid booster in a couple of weeks.
