Did you get the new shingles vaccine (Shingrix) or the old one?
I got the Shingrix vaccine a few months ago, second shot.... wow, felt like I got hit by a bus after no reaction to first shot. Woke up at 11pm the day after I had the shot and just knew for sure it was covid. I admit, scared the crap out of me. But fever broke within a few hours and the next day felt drained.

Got the 2nd shingrix in April 2020. Same experience as you. Thought for sure I had brought the ‘rona into my home.

I got the two Shingrix shots last fall. I didn’t have any negative side effects other than a little soreness at the site of the injection. Guess I was lucky.

No side effects from the shingles shots or the Pfizer shots. I highly recommend both.
My second Covid vaccine is on April 20th. Unfortunately for me, rather than the shingles vaccine, I got shingles back at the beginning of Dec. I still have numb areas and discolored tissue across my left chest, under my arm and part of my back. That is one really painful freakin disease!

Pfizer #2 yesterday morning. No noticeable side effects other than what feels like a mild bruise at the injection site. My wife got a J&J shot two weeks ago and felt awful for a few days, feverish and exhausted. A friend got one the same day and had the same experience. I was initially hoping for J&J to be one and done, but maybe two shots is the way to go.

As for shingles, I was lucky enough to have it at 30. Not much fun, but apparently it's not as bad if you have it when you're younger. It wasn't close to a kidney stone (27) or breaking my femur (10). I'd still prefer not to go for round two, though.

This thread is great! I come here to read about the Rams, but I usually have to go slumming over at the fur board to read about colonoscopies, vaccine reactions, which brand of prune juice is most effective, and other medical issues. Now, I have everything I need all in one place. Thanks Ramnation!

Yup. I had a similar experience with that one, but it was pre-Covid.
