2 months ago I had the first of the two Shingrix vaccines and had a pretty awful reaction. Horrible arm soreness, blisters in my throat, throat swelling, fatigue so bad I really did not want to move.
GP told me to go ahead and get the second shot. Hemeo doc said get the second shot. CLL specialist said DON’T get the second shot.
Pharmacy calls to tell me the second dose is waiting for me and since I am now feeling better than I have in several weeks, I decided to go for it. Fear of shingles is strong!
Well, I am happy to report that other than a sore arm and very slight fever, I am having no sever side effects! What a relief! I am glad I did it!!
