    I have received a flu shot every year since 1988. Every other suggested vaccine except shingles. In 2021, I have already had 3 COVID shots. My thing is that I am not comfortable getting 4-6 (or more) shot for the same virus and its variants. Hoping that starting in 2022, the only vaccines that I need is one flu shot and one COVID shot.

    You are not alone. Until last year I had gone 15 years without a flu shot because I don't like the idea of the shotgun approach used for influenza. That reluctance went right out the window last fall.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    So you are willing to get 30+ shots for 1 virus, but for another virus your limit is 3 ?

    I have no limit. I do have a preference. 30 flu vaccines in 30 years. vs. 3+ in one year. Don't you see the difference? I know that you do. You are a member of MENSA after all.

    If you ever had chicken pox you have shingles waiting to erupt. I had shingles pre-vaccines and trust me you do not want these painful eruptions radiating down a nerve pathway.

    I'm not sure why my doc discouraged me. I usually listen to the pros, even though I may complain about it.

    I got Shingrex1 like three or four years ago then everyone was out of of it. Originally was supposed to get 2 in 90 days... out of it so they said 180 days.. still out of it so they said up to 1 year.. still impossible to find.. At about 18 months git the second and they said it was still sufficient even that far apart.. Seems like they backfit the requirement to match the availability. Just glad I got something instead of nothing.

    "Nobody expects the shingles eruption"; bad juju.

    Curious if anyone's heard about adapting the new mRNA vaccine technology for influenza vaccines? Would seem to potentially provide a significant improvement over the old tech.

    ^^^ For sure this is going to advance the world of vaccines for a lot of disease. And that will probably harden the anti-vax crowd even more.

    FWIW out of all the jabs this past 20 months, Shingles2 kicked my ass the most.

    I see our mutual dog-loving friend has informed you about my interior decorating.

    Im not buying it. Just get vaxxed. Who cares how many times.

    I will, but that doesn't mean that I have to be thrilled about it.

    Immunity together
    How ya doing now?

    I had the same progression - body tried to freeze it, then burn it, then suffocate by plugging up sinuses.
    Finally woke up middle of second night soaked in sweat,feeling great!

    An intense immune reaction

    Of course. I'm going to just hope that my two Moderna and one Pfizer will suffice until the spring.

    Ditto - nary an issue with three Pfizer's but on my butt for Shingles2.

    I took it as a really good sign I got it.

    I'm guessing we don't see as many people arguing about their natural immunity to HPV vaccination.
