Shingles jab

I Have been invited for shingles jab. Does anyone know if there are reported side effects. I had shingles on my face and in my mouth about 10 years ago.

I was diagnosed 26 years ag with heart problems and have had the flu jab with no side effects. I also had the shingles jab again with no effects. I can only speak from experience.

Many thanks. Always a bit worrying. Life a bit extra busy at present so didn't want to land myself with an extra problem! Nevertheless always grateful for the care.

I had to delay having mine as I was still on a high dose of prednisolone .

I had it later with no side effects.

I'm So grateful to know others have not had side effects. Sometimes one needs a clear head to deal with other life issues so is nervous of adding to the confusion! Many thanks.
