    Is there any reason not to get my first Shingrix then (i.e., push it out further)? I initially was going to get both at the same time (which my wife thought was nuts), but was able to get my Covid booster more quickly than that.

    Thanks.
    "They" are saying it is OK to get shots close together or even at the same time.

    My pharmacist recommended stringing the vaccines two weeks apart.

    Thanks to some of you here who encouraged my getting it even though I'm not sure whether I had chicken pox as a kid, I got my first Shingles vaccine last week. Sore arm for a few days, and felt tired/achy for about 36 hours. It's certainly worth that, if I can avoid the huge problems that two people close to me had when they developed shingles.

    Close to a fever(99.7)* and chills 18 hours in. Not awful but unpleasant. Which is why I try to avoid getting sick.


    *I'm normally 97.1 this time of morning.

    Thanks. I am doing almost that. None of my Covid shots (Moderna) bothered me; hopefully this won't, either.

    Shingrix gave me the sorest arm of any of the shots. Aside from that, nothing much.

    Don't let your experience here stop you from getting the second shot.

    PHN is somewhat unlikely, but far, far worse.

    Agreed. The shot is much better than the virus.

    GWIW, the Shingrix shots were much worse for me than either Moderna COVID shot of the booster. But I got the shots on Fridays and was fine by Sunday afternoon.
    Birds arenít real. Do your own research!

    Oh, that was the second shot. Little to no reaction to the first. I did have shingles about 5 years ago. Some physical pain but not a big event.

    Shingrix #1 an hour and a half ago. So far, so good!

    Here's hoping the experience for both shots is as painless for you as it was for me!

    Thanks. So far, just a slightly sore arm.
