I got the first new shot but my doctor and CVS pharmacies don't have it at all so I can get the second one. Co. didn't expect such a high demand .
Jeff the Pharmacist (13 days ago)
Yeah I can echo that. Shipments used to come in occasionally now its frozen.

Your statement regarding the ratio of approvers versus non approvers at the CDC is untrue. It passed by one, not a large majority.

I'm 59 yrs old I just got the second shot first 8 hours sore arm after that it morphed into horrid body aches then move and then fever 101.4. I shivered shook...I've never had this reaction..but it lasted about 16 hours my fever with Tylenol came down to100.6...I felt like for 36 hours I had been hit by a bus.My hubby had gotten shingles despite us both having the first vac. He got it in May I sure didn't want it he has suffered so much...should he get the shot ? What can it do?how long after shingles outbreak.. I don't know why the doctor told me oh your arms gonna be a little sore..you should be prepared for a 24 to 36 hrs flu ...if it doesn't happen great but if it does you can plan for it

Jeff the Pharmacist but what about my hubby he had shingles and still has shadow of where rash was at it came back in those spots two weeks ago..my question is ..should he get shingrex and when?
Jeff the Pharmacist (3 months ago)
Shingrix has a very powerful immune reaction and more side effects than Zostavax or a flu shot... Flip side is how effective it is. This is a great point Catherine B, patients should be made aware about the down side! Here is a link with recommendation on when to get the shot after Zostavax from CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/public/shingrix/index.html CDC is basically recommending the shot even if you had Zostavax.

I received my second shot 6 hours ago and I feel terrible. The nurse told me I would never have to have another shot. Wrong this only lasts for 9 years.

The adjuvant is aluminum which is causing Alzheimer’s in older people, don’t get this vaccine you will get aluminum’s in your brain and be put in a care center. My grandma came down with Alzheimer’s after some aluminum filled vaccines and her mind was gone in six months lator she died a year lator. Vaccines are killing our elderly I promise you this be warned.

I have a friend who is telling everyone not to get any shots as they are full of poisonous substances, but of course the doctors don't tell you this

is this the vaccine that has a lawsuit against them for causing shingles?
S E (7 months ago)
Good choice Cara.. No wonder brains are getting damage and the risks come when your older as well. But many children been damaged. Pro vaxers don't care as long its not them or their children. Seen the inserts Doctors don't won't tell you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dezaWwj2VtI

Mike Smith you are absolutely right and with that I will leave YOU to yourself...
Mike B (7 months ago)
Yeah well like they say, you can't argue with crazy
Cara Cromie (7 months ago)
Mike Smith nope... pro natural immunity. anti big pharma. anti abortion. anti injecting foreign things in to healthy children and people. if vaccines had 0 risk, were naturally occuring in nature and didn't rely on the death of a baby or animal for production or include copious amounts of heavy metals then i would wait in line for my shots. you know what is naturally occurring.... immunity and if i get ill then i will seek medical care if necessary. it is estimated that around 700,000 people die each year from medical mistakes and adverse reactions... thanks but no thanks...

If you are younger than 50 can you get this vaccine? I am 37 and had shingles when I was 30.
Jeff the Pharmacist (8 months ago)
Your doctor could give it to you
Emily Chamberlan (11 months ago)
What are the adjuvants in this vaccine?
Jeff the Pharmacist (11 months ago)
It is a chemical added to the vaccine that ramps up the immunity. The vaccine is two components. The antigen component is a varicella zoster virus glycoprotein, similar to that found on Varicella virus. Your body recognizes that when shingles is emerging and supresses it. The adjuvant component is taken from the bark of a Quillaja saponaria (soap bark) evergreen tree native to warm temperate central Chile. Somehow that increases the immune response to the vaccine. I don't understand why it works. I am not sure the story about how it was discovered and if they now exactly what the body is responding to.
