Reply To: Another vaccine victim added to the long list
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.
