Did you get the new Shingrix, or Zostavax? It's my understanding the CDC is recommending that those who have gotten the Zostavax vaccine now be revaccinated with Shingrix. I'm going to ask my doctor about it as I've been vaccinated with Zostavax.

Shingrix vs. Zostavax

I actually don't know. I wasn't real excited with the nurse who gave me the shot, as far as her knowledge, and they didn't give me any printed stuff at all.

One side effect for 2 days after the shot was a a lot of gas.

I've been holding off on getting mine, as my primary care physician recommended the new vaccine (Shingrix). That was two years ago! It is supposed to be more effective and is apparently now available.

I had a mild case of shingles 20 or so years ago and I am therefore less likely to get it again, but the vaccine is still recommended. Gonna get it, one of these days.

Actually Eric asked both of his doctors and both said that he should NOT get the shot, since he had had it. Who knows? Apparently doctors don't!!

Good move Carol. I got shingles after my back operation and it's not fun!

A note to those that procrastinate getting the shot.
Came down with shingles in left eye several years ago. Not a good time. 5 months later (not unusual according to eye specialist) got shingles again in same eye. Result was that my pupils do not dilate equally anymore. Sounds weird but could have been lots worse.
Don't be foolish. Get the shot!

Reduction of intolerant friends and acquaintances for a short time or about 10 days of SERIOUS pain. No brainer for me.
