You know what's more painful than a Shingix shot?
I know. I've had both.
darn straight brother. Did you get the shot after having shingles or before? Since shingles can come back, I have to wait a while before I can get it.
If anything, get the shot. Whatever discomfort you might feel from the shot for a couple of days, is NOTHING, compared to the pain shingles brings.
