I am a healthy 67 year old. I got the high dosage flu shot on 11/2/18 and started having skin sensitivity 7 days later. Within a few days a painful rash developed and the doctor’s diagnosis is Shingles. I waited for 2 days after the rash started to see a doctor & I am now on Famciclovir for 7 days and dealing with lots of pain & discomfort. I wish I had known that the flu shot has triggered Shingles in others. I would still have gotten the shot but would have seen my doctor at the first signs of skin sensitivity for possible treatment rather than wait 3 or 4 days until a rash developed.
