So having it once does not leave you immunized, I gather, like Chicken pox?

If I recall correctly, shingles is the dormant form of the virus come back to roost. It can resurface repeatedly.
Keeping your immune system stoked is a good way to keep it at bay.

Doctors don't know why, but sometimes the virus “wakes up” and travels along nerve fibers to your skin.
That's when it lands its second punch -- shingles, also called herpes zoster.May 22, 2018 :thud:

FYI. I checked at King Sooper's this morning and they told me to check back next month.

For me, the first shot made my arm really sore to move for a few days. After the first couple of days my entire upper arm was extremely sensitive to touch, which lasted another 2-3 days. MUCH better than getting shingles, but unexpected. I get the next one in another few months.

Please check with your doctor and make sure your reaction is normal.
Especially if they are giving you a second vac.
My first pneumonia vac was not too bad but my second one caused my immune system to react badly. 24 hrs later my previously injured knee was swollen twice it's size. For months joint after joint became painful, hair loss, aches etc.
I reported it to the vac. reporting system and found very few people have any reaction. But I was one of the blessed. You are likely just fine to go, but please check with your dr.

I am not trying to scare you. Vaccines are a very good and safe way to avoid diseases. I like that the new shingles vac. is more effective. You just need to make sure you are not in the tiny percent that is bothered.
