Shingles have been around for a long time. When I first started nursing 25 years ago it was so rare that we would all run in to see what it looked like. Now, it's so common we all know what it looks like. I am one of the unfortunate people who developed shingles after a flu vaccine. Axilla shingles, 3 months of severe shoulder pain. Correlation does not equal causation, but it does suggest we should look into it. As a nurse or physician you cannot question vaccines without being destroyed....maybe we should all be asking why that is?
