Hi everyone. I was at my pharmacy picking up some prescription mess when I overheard the pharmacist going over dosage instructions of prednisone to an
older gentleman who has shingles. After discussing that, he discussed the guy coming in after his shingles was completely healed to get the
The guy with the shingles said he had gotten the vaccination several months ago. I was thinking WTH?
Has anyone else received this vaccine and gotten shingles? I ask because I am thinking of getting the vaccine, as I have had had several bouts of
shingles, and am now over 50 years of age. I have to make an appointment with my doctor to do this, as my pharmacy will only give the shingles vaccine
to those 60 and older.
I am sick of getting shingles, but I now see that I could get the vaccine and still wind up with it.
Please let me know your thoughts. Shingles is very painful.
