Good advice.

We try to avoid shots, especially vaccines, if the next few days are "important" (meetings, travel, etc.), just in case.

But apparently the Shingrix vaccine (the new one, not the older one) can have especially unpleasant, but temporary, side effects for several days.

Thanks for the reminder!
I had been trying on and off a lot to find some "in stock", and I sort of forgot about it, even though we remembered the flu shots.
