I had a similar reaction - just sore arm on the first, but more reactions to the second (+2 months apart). I got a case of shivers that took a bit to wear off on the evening of the 2nd shot and did feel "worn out" the next day.

Ditto for me. I was planning to hang out and laze about but instead did some yard work. I am very glad I got that over.

I'd say contact a mod on P&OC before you make one there to tell them your intent. If you do get one started, post here to let us know cause I'd like to go too

They have not been allowed on Health & Wellness since before I became a mod. I don't know why such a thread would get moved from P&OC because that's where they belong--these threads always cause a huge, long fight because they are so controversial. H&W can't handle the nastiness. P&OC has several mods and they are used to controversial topics where post after post after post has to be deleted due to insults, name calling, and general fighting.

You can try in P&OC again and if someone moves it into H&W I will move it back to where it belongs--P&OC.
The topic is extremely controversial, not simple and straight forward. There doesn't seem to be one simple answer.

As I previously reported about 2 1/2 weeks ago, I had very little reaction to my first Shingrix shot back in August. Mostly just a bit of a sore shoulder for 2 or 3 days, but nothing bad at all.


My wife got her first Shingrix shot about 3 or 4 days ago and seems to be affected about the same as me... which is to say hardly at all. She did get a small red skin rash at the base of her throat on the second day, but it has pretty much gone away by now. Besides, there is no guarantee that the skin rash was even related to the shot. It might have been due to something else, but it was very minor regardless what caused it.

I guess my Angel's are trying to tell me not to get the vaccine. I don't know what I'm going to do. I do have to go back to that pharmacy because one of my scripts needs authorization. If the pharmacist that gives them is there I may get it; if he's not; I'm going to consider that 3 strikes and I'm out.
Pharmacy day today. Greg the owner was there, the vax was $8. He was expecting it to be $50-$100 due to my insurance but I'm out if the donut hole. So I did it.

My arm is sore. My upper gums and the roof of my mouth started tingling before I even got to my car. As I started driving, my tongue and throat started tingling. I really hope it goes away and doesn't turn into an allergic reaction.

He wants me back in 2 months. I'll get the 2nd in December as long as I'm ok from this one.

Just for the record, I had little reaction to my shots, at least that I can recall. That's typical of me.

I used to have most of my dental work done without getting a numbing shot, simply because the shots I got never seemed to be enough to prevent pain anyway. Now days I do because the numbing works. Different dentist, so I don't know if my old one just didn't like to give me enough "stuff" in my shots to work or why it didn't numb enough. I had the same dentist, also a friend of mine, for 25 years or more -- until he was killed in a car accident.

I received the second of the two-shot series last week and didn't have a localized reaction but did have malaise and aches/pains full body felt like the flu. Took motrin and was fine the next day.

No problems with the first shot.

I usually do well w/ the flu, other shots - have kept up with them for awhile (ex-military).....

I posted in this topic when I received the first dose of Singrix and didn't have any reaction to it at all. The second dose was given to me a few days ago, and I had a moderate amount of pain for 2 days, especially in my upper left arm, where I was vaccinated.


But, I functioned at my usual level of activity.
