SECOND Dose Shingles Vaccine
Thursday, December 31, 2020
I got the second dose of the shingles vaccine on Monday. That one is a doozy!
First, it goes in the upper muscle on the side that I sleep on. So, for two nights I didn't sleep well. Every time that I would be good and asleep, I would roll over on that arm.
I got every darned side effect symptom. My arm hurt, it swelled, I had mild flu symptoms and all I wanted to do was sleep.
For two days all I did was watch Netflix and sleep.
I feel better today. The injection site feels like a giant bug bite that is itchy and painful - but that is all.
In the long run, it's a good trade off. I got some rest and then I won't get shingles.
Sometimes we have to take the bad with the good.
