Thread: What types of vaccines have you gotten?

    Post What types of vaccines have you gotten?

    A few here recently mentioned about getting vaccinations for pneumonia and shingles. Just curious, who got what and why? Past flu shots too?

    Except for childhood immunizations the only things I've gotten as an adult were the tetanus boosters and I only got those because I like to play in the dirt.

    Here's a list of some to help trigger your memory.

    I get tetanus boosters and that's about it. I get it because I, too, like to play in the dirt. I also recently stepped on a nail that went right into the meaty part of my foot. Dr's office said I was 3 years away from needing a new tetanus shot.

    I did have the usual childhood shots - in the 60s. Probably long before they started messing with the cocktail of chemicals in them.

    I think as an adult all I've had is a tetanus shot, I had a few vaccinations from when I went to Africa, yellow fever, etc., and I will be getting the shingles vaccine in a few months since my shingles episode. He told me to wait three months.
