Has anyone tried the SHINGRIX Vaccine?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the Shingrix vaccine and noticed any decreased frequency of HSV2 symptoms? Please only reply if you have tried the vaccine. No arguments.  I have read other posts and don't want this one to turn into a joke.

I received shingrix vaccination for $163. on March 10 2018.

sore arm for 3 days.

so far, noticed no effect on hsv2.

been told optimum benefit is to wait 4 months for the 2nd shot ,

so in june I'll receive & pay another $163.

No effect on hsv2 sounds better than the adverse effect folks have documented online from the older vacccine. But yes, please keep us posted.  Many thanks!

May I ask how you obtained it?  I have tried almost every pharmacy in Albuquerque, NM and none will let me get it since I am not 50.  Looking at your screen name it appears you are not 50.  Did you go to Canada?

I live in canada and I'm over 65.

I'm now 2 months post shot.

since the day of the shot, march 25,

the burning intensity  has not decreased,

it  definitely has not lessened like it used to do after a few weeks.

when I had the shot, I was into one of these surges.

maybe I should have waited.

the burning now is like 'it' got 'locked in'

weather this has to do with the shingrix shot I have no idea.

this is where one has to be very careful, not to jump to conclusions.

in another month I'll have the 2nd shot.

I had the first shot Shingrix two weeks ago and have currently another outbreak. It’s different from the outbreaks I usually had, less bumps and it’s already almost healed again, after only three days. I will definitely get the second vaccination in 2 months.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
