Got the one that was available a few years ago. It made a huge red itchy welt on my arm that latest several days. My understanding is that the new shot causes an even more pronounced immune response so I'm not real sure I want to get it. My whole arm my blow up.


Mine (several years ago) produced no particular reaction. Ditto the Countess's shot last week.

I understand that only the one shot is required for protection forever.

... Wish I could say the same about the pneumonia shot. The second one made my arm swell (and ache) and I was shivering - cold and slightly sick.
