Reply To: Any connection with shingles vacine?

fwiw, I was diagnosed with GBS (not CIDP) two weeks after receiving *both* the flu and shingrix (Shingles) vaccines at the same time (perhaps not the wisest thing to do in retrospect). That was 18 months ago. DOctors recommended that I stop getting the flu vaccine and to not get the second dose of shingrix. At least at that time, unlike with the influenza vaccine, there was no “known” link between shingrix and GBS. At any rate, since then I’m almost fully recovered, and received the J&J COVID vaccine about five weeks ago without any serious side effects or reactions.
