Has anyone gotten shingles after getting the Shingrix vaccine? I got my first injection earlier this month. I had a sore arm, headache, some stomach ache, but it went away after a few days. One week after the injection a small patch of shingles broke out on my forehead about the size of a quarter and I had a bad headache. The patch hurt quite a bit. I called my gp to report it and ask what to do. He wanted to see it. I went in and he agreed that it looked like shingles. He thought it must be a coincidence because it is a dead vaccine. Seems strange to me! He gave me a prescription for the medicine to treat shingles, and it is healing nicely by now. Any ideas? He said to wait the full six months before getting the second shot.
