Glenn, it is more likely your case was triggered by your infection than by the shingles vaccine. No causative relation between GBS and the shongles vaccine has been established. Correlation in a few cases is not evidence of causation. People were getting GBS long before there was a shingles vaccine.

As for the influenza vaccine, I had never had one in my life before developing CIDP. Now I get one every year.
