Re: Has anyone gotten shingles after getting the shingles vaccine?

You betcha, I have had the shingles after the shingles and after the shot. I advise get the shot. My shingles since the shot are not near as severe as they were before. I have had them so many times I am losing count but it is either 2 or 3 times I have had them since the shot.

I thought they did not cross over the midline of the body but the last 3 times I have had them in my opposite eye. I am taking an antiviral pill 5 times a day for 2 weeks plus Zirgan for my eye. It all helps.
