Shingdrix vaccine

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello from MRSATD,

Today I received my first dose of the shingdrix vaccine and am scheduled to get the second dose in January 2019. Can anyone who has completed the vaccination process and has had recurgent herpes zoster please tell me if this vaccine e has positive results. I would really appreciate your input.

Thank you, MRSATD

    i have had both shots and what i can tell about me, keep in mind everyone is different, my cases have gotten better and fewer the shot did help but i still break out. i have a lot of stress in my life and i had about 15 sick days a month before the vaccine and now i have about 30 days or so without an outbreak. when i do become sick, its not nearly as severe.

    i wish you luck! its an awful virus.
