Got mine (first shot) an hour ago. Beats getting shingles.

A bit off topic (ok, a whole lot off topic) FYI, but a nota bene to my brother vets in the club who might not already know: the VA had finally received the recombinant Zoster (Shingles) vaccine (trade name Shingrex). Even if you've already gotten the "Zostavax" live shingles vaccine, you would benefit from the two-injection series of Shingrex due to its 90% efficacy against getting shingles.
Be nice to the nurse or murse who gives it to you. You don't want him/her to tap the needle on the table before sticking it in your arm...
