    Hello all. I wondered if anyone has heard any anecdotes about people developing shingles after the Covid vaccine?

    My mother had the jab two weeks ago. She said that in the last week, she felt a small pain rise from the jab arm, across her shoulders into her active arm, and where now and across the back she has a horrendous case of shingles

    I wondered whether this is pure coincidence or there is a link. When I googled, it came with up with ‘Experts debunk theory of a link between Covid and shingles’. I am getting into potential conspiracy theory territory I know, but thought if experts have debunked something, that must be because someone was saying it in the first place. The article said they were responding to the significant increase in the use of Covid Shingles as a search term

    Yes, a young girl who is a friend of the family also developed shingles after the first dose.
