Good grief!! I was thinking about getting it. After the negative responses, I think I won't get it after all.

What? That a number of people have felt sore, or sick for several days? Nothing really more that a good 24 hour bug would do? Man, I would take that anytime over multiple months of pain, possible life long nerve pain/damage, and the possibility of screwing up my eye if it was near there.

Yes, I had my Shingrix shots last year.

Everyone has a choice, and must be comfortable with their own choice, and possible ramifications.

SHINGLES is horrible pain, people!! The worse discomfort I've ever had...

I had it on my torso but as noted you can get it on your face or near your eyes causing no end of problems. You do not want to skip a vaccination for a bit of arm pain or mild physical discomfort. And some are left with post herpetic pain that's very hard to live with...

MDs recommend the vaccine to possibly prevent shingles or to lessen symptoms if you do get shingles.

This discussion is limited to people who have had the vaccine - it's not for anti-vaccine comments or alternate discussions. Normally a wider range of discussion is allowed in a thread, but this topic has been contentious in the past.

It is quite possible I did not read the posts as carefully as I should have. Thanks to all who made that obvious to me. Listening to Boccelli distracted me.

Just a note, all the Walgreens I’ve contacted put me on a 6 month wait list, I called my family doctor today and I’m getting the first shot next week. I have BC/BS insurance and they cover the cost 100%

I had the original shot in 2010. I had the shinglex shots this past year. I had no problems with them at all. After watching my Uncle and Mother suffer with Shingles. There was no way I ever wanted to deal with it. I made sure I got these shots. My BC paid the entire cost.
