I had a bad reaction to a shingles shot at the VA a couple of years ago. It started within about 6 hours. There was pain at the injection site. I woke up in the middle of the night with chills so bad, I couldn't hold a glass of water due to the shaking.

By the next morning, things were back to normal. I reported this to the VA and they said it might have been due to a combination with the pneumonia shot I also had.

I’m scheduled to get my Shingrex shot in February. I hope I don’t have the same reaction you did Marzy. Hope you recover quickly.

I got a little sick from the first shot, but the second one sent me to the ER. Not quite as bad as yours was.

My apologies to Mars for being a complete dick, as well as to the group at large. I could have plenty of excuses but no legitimate reason to act like such an asshole. It won’t happen again.

Hope you continue to feel better.

Sorry you had such a bad experience with that craptastic nursing staff. My wife is a nurse (a very good one - per her patients and coworkers), and usually it's the other way around, where the nurses advocate more for the patient than the doctor who has to cover more patients.

This is what you get when you don't have standards - graduating people no matter what. And you'll also get this if you have no choice in your healthcare provider, as there is no incentive to improve because people can't vote with their wallets.

I'll probably get the vaccine next year too. So thanks for the heads up for the potential fun I might be having. Yaaay...


...that I will support
and defend...

I had the Shingrix shots last year and developed a bad case of gout in my right thumb. Never had gout before and I thought I was never going to be able to shoot a pistol with my right hand again. Checked the literature and sure enough gout is one of the adverse reactions in a small number of people. It started getting better and I took the second shot with no adverse reaction. It is completely gone now.

After recent depressing events culminating today with the death of the young woman in the nation's capital,
a heart-felt and sincere apology such as yours serves as a reminder that there are still lots of good folks out there.

YAY, I now have a goddammed bill for this clusterfuck of a visit.

Sounds like it's time for litigation.

I hope you get some resolve Mars, I can't imagine having an extreme reaction to a vaccine given and then have to deal with fallout from inexperienced staff when you need help. What a nightmare. I cannot try and put myself in your shoes because honestly I've yet to ever have that kind of treatment anywhere, in hospitals or doctors offices. I wish you well.

Getting the bill I'm sure adds insult to injury!


Regards, Will G.

Damn I missed all of this till now. Glad your doing better...ugh well until the damn bill came. I bet when the doctor see it he will tell you to forget about it. Bet its just that it was automatic to do billing.

Hope you do get the second shot and it goes better for you. Still has to be better then getting the shingles.

Luckily when I got mine I just had the slight sore are and feeling a little off for a day.

My wife and I received the 2nd shingrex vaccine yesterday. We both had pretty strong reactions. Mine was worse with Fever of 101, chills, nausea and vomiting.

We hiked our Gsheps post shot which might have been a mistake per my Pharmacist Sister in Law.

Better this morning with just a headache. Chills were so bad I Had to take a 20 minute hot shower.
