My wife, who unlike me religiously gets flu shots, got the first shingles shot and refused to return for follow-up due to side effects.

Tell her if she contracts shingles, she’ll really wish she’d gotten that second shot.

A photo and a first person account is helpful as well. The virus can result in post herpetic neuralgia that goes on for months, not to mention loss of vision depending on which nerve is affected.

Is this true? Where did you all get your Shingrix vaccination?
I got my vaccinations at the CVS Minute Clinic .

Just returned from getting my flu shot at Kroger. I asked while I was there and they also give the Shingrix shots.

I was on the waiting list at Walgreens since February. Checked in last month and still no vaccine.
Got pissed last week and called my local pharmacy chain and they had product in stock. Got my first
shot today and covered in full by insurance. It pays to check around.

Got my second shot this week. I had to wait almost a year for the first one because the vaccine was in short supply. Had a sore arm for a couple of days following shot one. After the second shot, had a sore arm and felt crappy for about a day. That was it, glad I got the new vaccine.

We called around and were offered to be on a waiting list. About a month later they called. We went in that same day.
Next was the three month wait. Again we got called and got the second shot.

My suggestion is to call around for availability. Get on a waiting list. When the vaccine comes in don’t wait.



“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams
