I have just got over having Shingles and have now been offered the jab for it.
Two people i know have had the jab, and had a bad reaction with it, and landed up in A and E and was put on steroids. so i am having second thoughts.
Neither of them had cancer.
Was wondering if anyone on site has taken it up, with no problems.
I was advised by the nurses in my treatment clinic not to have any jabs...covid, flu or shingles, whilst I'm on immunotherapy, as my immune system has enough to do without bombarding it with anything else! So I have avoided any jabs since then. So far, I haven't had any of the diseases. Fingers crossed....
Hi yes when i was on treatment, i was told i could not have anything, that they call a live vaccine, and i never, and like you, i was good.
Not on any treatment at moment, have had flu and covid, jabs with no problems, it is just the shingles i am concerned about, two people i know have had it, not got cancer and landed up at a and e ,x
