Common side effects from the vaccine include pain, redness, soreness or swelling at the site of the injection, or other symptoms such as headache, muscle aches, fever, shivering and fatigue. People who have one of these reactions after the first dose of Shingrix vaccine should still get the second dose. Serious side effects from the shingles vaccine are rare.
