Default getting vaccine shot

for shingles. I don't know if I even had chicken pox but I am not taking a chance on getting shingles.

I am worried about the side affects or if there is any.

Everyone with 'D' should get one.

I got mine last year and the only side effect in a very small number of people seems to be minor soreness at the injection site.

Decided I could live with that - but couldn't live with a really nasty case of the shingles!

Turned out to be the highlight of my day though. Got it done at the supermarket pharmacy (cheapest) and the young woman behind the counter, when I said I wanted to get a shingles shot, said "I'm sorry, you have to be 60 to get one."

Shanny, Patdart and Carolina like this.
