I have had the awful consequences of getting the flu after getting a flu shot once. Fever, chills, muscle aches and pains, and high temperature. I couldn't even get out of bed if I wanted to...never got a flu shot after that. I don't get out anymore and I'm especially never in crowds so I am not worried about getting the flu or pneumonia.
As for the Shingles vaccine, if you never had the chicken pox, you're not necessarily ever going to get Shingles. I didn't so I'm not willing to get a vaccine I really don't need. As for HPV, I understand that's only for teens. That's what the commercials seem to state. Get your teen the HPV vaccine.
My mom had the most severe case of shingles on her neck and shoulder (she did have chicken pox as a child) said her doctor that he even took photos for examples to others. She was hospitalized for almost 2 weeks and wound up with neuralgia in that shoulder for the rest of her life. It was so painful that no pain meds helped. Vioxx was just out at that time and it helped her, but then wa recalled. After that, no help at all.Doc wouldn't prescribe Oxy or anything else. She would cry every day. That's when she decided she would rather die than put up with that pain for years and she deteriorated after that. She was in constant pain for 4 years.
