Skip to comments.New Shingles Vax??
Posted on 03/24/2018 2:19:15 PM PDT by bboop
Feedback on the new shingles vaccine? I usually lie low on medical treatment and don't go for 'the latest' treatment on much of anything. But then, I am healthy. Any feedback about this new vaccine? Side-effects? Avoid it? Go for it? Just collecting data here, thanks.
Wondering the same thing myself.
Got it last year - no problems at all afterward
I had it a bit over a year ago with no ill effects.
A couple of people in my family (father in old age 20 years ago, one of my sons as a teenager, mild case) had it, and it didn’t look like fun. So I sprang for the vaccine, which wasn’t covered by insurance and set me back about $230.
Am going to get one the next trip to VA. Wouldn’t give me one till I reached 65.
Oh no, ALL vaccines will make your kids, past and present,
retarded and psychotic and crazy and retarded.
Shun all vaccines unless you want psycho retarded kids.
And the Earth is flat.
I got it during the 2000 election, scalp and left side of face, horrible.
our doc recommended it, got it, no bad effects noted
It is significantly more effective at reducing chance of out break and post infection neuropathy than ol vaccine.
I had a pretty big local reaction to it in my arm (redness and swelling) - but everybody I know who has had shingles says it’s the worst pain ever.
info linkees abound. here’s one for you...
I had the shingles vax in august 2014, no side effects that I noticed. A good friend of mine got shingles, it was horrible I would hate to go through that.
During the election? Could the stress of the Sore-Loserman chad-count and subsequent court circus have been a contributing factor?
I doubt Shingrix was available at that time. You probably got Zostavax.
“And the Earth is flat.”
No, it is NOT! God! What does it take to convince you flat types that the oceans would drain if the Earth was flat???
The Earth is concave! That holds the water in!
You’ll just need to spend a few months and read my blog outlining the proof of the concave Earth.
A friend of ours did not take the vaccine and developed shingles. She is now blind in one eye.
Didn’t know there was a new one
As bad as shingles are to get I’d say go for it and get the vac.
My friend got the shingles and she was miserable for a year.
You are so smart!
My MD had no price for it and wasn’t sure about Medicare coverage——this was in mid-December.
The things I had read about it were very positive.
