That makes sense, thank you for the reply. I didn't realize the after effects can be rough so I will be prepared.
Hello. I don't think there is any real difference. It's the same vaccine. I've had vaccines at the pharmacy and in the doctors office. I had flu vaccine this year in the pharmacy. I had my covid booster at a hospital clinic. And did just go through the two shot series for the shingles vaccine at the doctors office. The second time, I just came in, sat in a room and a nurse gave me the shot and I left in about 2 minutes time. I will tell you though . . .totally worth getting as shingles is awful. And even if you have had shingles, you can get it any time again and again. And there is a pain syndrome that can happen from it that is chronic. No thanks. BUT, the vaccine is a bit rough. For me, the first one laid me out. I had headache, nausea, fatigue, muscle aches and pretty much slept like I was getting over a major illness. I felt worse with that than any other vaccine I've ever had. I read that the SECOND one is supposed to be the 'bad' one. But for me, that one had virtually no symptoms. You have to get both in order to be protected but plan it at the end of the week so you have the weekend to recover. Wherever you get it. That part doesn't matter. Same shot. But prepare yourself for not feeling too well after. :>)
