If that is the case perhaps you can pay out of pocket and get it sooner?

I really don't want to get shingles!

I had shingles five years ago, running from hip to foot. It was painful neuropathy, and I was in the hospital several days on Valtrex, which did suppress it, but I was then on a walker for a couple of months. It was bad, but I would rather not risk a vaccine to avoid it. Vaccines probably have longer lasting harm to me than actually having a painful but curable disease like shingles. Of course I still have the virus in me, no doubt. I am SURE I got it from taking a chemo for my Polycythemia Vera, which lowered my immune system. I no longer take the chemos which most people with PV take. I have taken p32 radiation twice at Mayo to lower platelets instead. Long trip but no side effects.

Not that but Chronic Fatigue which led to a boatload of other neurological issues including digestive issues, severe memory loss, 50 Pt's of IQ, encephalopathy, nerve damage, siezures, etc. I'm permanently disabled and have been bedridden for years at a time. DO NOT EVER GET FLU SHOTS OR VACCINATIONS IF YOU CAN, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE INSOMNIA OR AUTOIMMUNE ISSUES. After I got sick I joined support groups and it was common for people to get seriously sick after flu shots. I mentioned it to my pharmacist and she gave me a form to report it and they wanted $250. 10 years later I have to take a lot of stimulants to get out of bed. Ive seen tons of doctors and nothing worked but EMDR to reduce stress. I find solutions on forums like this. Good luck.

I’ve not had issues getting the pneumococcal vaccine, however tetanus shot did give me with an eye twitch and some extra uncontrolled muscle movements in my hands for about a year afterwards. Mostly I try to be practical when it comes to vaccines, if the potential for catching disease is high, and disease is greater suffering than the vaccine side-effects, then I get the vaccine. I skip the flu shot, as my risk group even with MS is lower than potential side-effects. Pneumococcal however I’m at a higher risk due to both the MS and scarring on the bronchial tubes with additional risk from chronic sinusitis. All roads pretty much run straight towards pneumonia for me and nearly died from it twice before the vaccine came out. Not willing to risk a third time.
Side Effects: may cause dizziness, drowsiness, bleeding from the brain, heart explosions, alternate realities, brain spasms, and in rare cases temporary symptoms of death may occur.
