I had a shingles vaccine about 3 years ago.
On August 10, 2016 I had the first symptom of shingles. I didn't think about it being shingles since I'd had the vaccine, but it was diagnosed several days later when my doctor said that it was too late to use the anti viral med.
So, it is now October 21, 2016 - 10 weeks and 2 days. The affected area is smaller so far as 'rash' [lower right rib area] and the pain less [though there is still pain.] I have read 3-5 weeks.
It is getting old as wearing clothes that touch it hurts!
