Hi @system28 – I’m so glad you’re finally able to get the Shingles vaccine! Do you have to return in a few months for the second dose?

My father also had shingles on his face last year, and it was so painful – he couldn’t sleep at all because he was just in constant pain. It started in his ear and creeped closer to his eye. Do the eye drops make your eyes feel even more irritated and itchy?
