I'm in the same boat, and it needs pitching... anyway, I'm going to the doc week after next, and have made a note to ask about it. Only trouble is, will I remember the note? I'm a bit concerned with all this "marketing" in recent years for "immunizations", and how "important" they are... I've had shingles a couple of times, and dey ain't no fun fer certain, but another shot? What's the shot's ingredients, and how's it made? How does the shot "prevent" the shingles, and what are the side effects? How does a person weigh the risk of "the disease" versus "the cure" in this case, ya know?... Shingles is an inflammation of the nerve fibre, and I'm not sure I want another entity in there messin' witt my nerves. the lupus is already doin' a number on me... but I don't want the shingles again either.
