    Any of you old fukkers had the shingles vaccine?

    Was going to get it this week but a buddy of mine said that the reaction knocked him down for a couple of days..

    I am not afraid of that and really want to get it but I am not willing to miss a couple of days of prime fishing because of some reaction bullsh!t.

    If any of you had the shot any side effects worth mentioning?

    I believe that Shingrix is a two-shot vaccine and costs $324 without insurance.

    Its effectiveness lasts for 4 years.

    Thanks gregg, Yep, Shingrix is the one I will be getting, yeah it's about 160 a shot.. Not sure if my insurance covers it or not.. Doesn't matter if it doesn't, it's money well spent, shingles is no joke from what I have seen.

    I am seriously thinking about it sometime this year. Some side effects are normal.

    Had the Shingrix shots in '20. Seems to me the 1st and second shot were
    several months apart. I don't remember any side effects apart from the shots
    themselves were unusually painful.

    I had both of mine a few months ago. Felt mildly "yucky" the next day, but nothing significant.

    I don't think I'm old enough at 40 but I plan to get this vaccination when I can. My wife got shingles a few years ago at 35, which is pretty unusual, and she was miserable.

    I had an actual case of shingles years ago and would NEVER want that to recur.

    In my opinion, there is no negative “side effect” that can remotely compare with pain signals being directly injected into your nerves for days and days.

    I did not notice any negative side effects with the Shingrix vaccine.
    At age 63, I've exceeded all my prior PRs. Not “over the hill” yet. :)

    I’m surprised it’s only for 4 years…Kids chickenpox vax bridges the gap until needing shingles. Adult immune system must not like to store that one forever…Just odd.

    As in the other thread, people I’ve known that got shingles said is was pretty awful.

    I got the Shingrix vaccine a couple of years ago. The first shot was horrible. Had the chills, a headache, achy like a really bad flu. Lasted a couple of days. The second shot a few months later was the opposite. No side effects at all. I would get the vaccine Pockets. Have you seen or know of someone who had the shingles on their face? Believe me, you don't want any part of that. Having it on your back or waist is bad enough. But on your face is a whole new kind of whoop ass. Get the vaccine.

    Yes, I knew someone that had it on his head, he was pushing 90 and never fully recovered. He was not the same after that. He was also in the hospital for a long time from it. Was 100 percent healthy before that happened.

    Oh I am definitely getting it, that was never a question... I just didn't want to miss any time away from spring fishing if I have side effects.. As it turns out, the forecast changed for this week and they are calling for wind and rain for Thursday and Friday so Wednesday I will roll up my sleeve, (unless the weather changes) giving me 3 days to recover..

    What you describe is what exactly what my buddy said, it put him down for a bit Thanks for letting me know.


    Yep, I have seen it. A younger gal at my gym was missing for a few weeks because of it, she showed me.. Damn that was nasty AF

    I have been meaning to get it for a while now..Put it off for too long. Now's the time.

    Howdy O....

    Sorry to hear that.

    We haven't got the shingles vaxx yet and haven't heard a lot of hype about it here in the heartland.
    Although, after yakking with the wifster a couple days ago she reminded me we did get it maybe <10 years ago and it cost about $200 buckaroos and insurance did not help at all.
    My memory is a bit fuzzy on what we actually did.

    Have a great day weed hoppers....

    Well I got it done yesterday and I am now 19 hours post shot... here is what I experienced

    4 hours post shot some tenderness in the Delt

    8 hours post shot, it hit me pretty good, extreme fatigue, could hardly keep my eyes open, joint and muscle pain throughout the entire body that was just more annoying than anything.

    10 hours post shot I gave up and hit the fart sack

    19 hours post shot, arm is pretty tender, other than that I feel like a million bucks..



    I still have another shot to go in 60 days...

    All in all it wasn't very bad at all...

    Get er done boys and girls, much easier than the shingles







    Damn OS, 28 is the youngest I heard of for shingles..

    My wife had a 2 shot deal for the shingles and she got very sore and felt beat up as a result.
    I haven't bothered and doubt I will get them.

    Yeah I had it on the right side of my rib cage...

    Very painful when it started to clear up because it reaches down into the nerves.

    it was fairly messy for a period also.

    There is more to my story, this weekend I had a 50 mile, 2 day 1 night hike planned and yesterday (19 hours post shot) I headed out. About 2 miles in I started to feel sh!tty again, of course I was in denial and trudged on, by mile 4 I started feeling really rotten, my arm was terrible and I thought I had a fever so I gave in and returned home..

    I got home less than 24 hours post shot and sure as sh!t I had a fever and spent the day and night eating tylenol with hot and cold flashes with the shivers and a massive headache. I never get headaches, maybe only has 3 in my life.

    42 hours post shot now, arm is still tender but not that bad, my fever broke last night and I still feel like I have a mild flu.


    Being a vet, I have had a ton of vaccines nothing put me down like this fukker did. Yesterday was brutal..


    Desperado, I found out what you meant by yours being horrible.

    Corbi, I feel your wifes pain, good luck..

    OS, sounds terrible

    Right on my man, congrats on the shot and not having any side effects is a bonus...


    Took me a bit, bit all the side effects are over now...

    Yeah man, mine was so horrible I seriously considered not getting the 2nd shot. Did it anyway and was fully expecting the same truck running me over but nothing. Nada. So go figure. Glad you're on the mend Pockets.
