    I have to get a pneumovax vaccine due to my low immune system and then have my immunoglobins checked again in 4 weeks. I'm 60.

    Did anyone get side effects from this vaccine? Kind of nervous about it.

    Isn't 60 great? Now you can finally act the way you want and blame your age! LOL! And sigh when you grandchildren say "Hey, Gran, who are those other 3 guys with Sir Paul? Was he in a band or something?"

    Seriously, though, I had the pneumonia vaccine last year and my immune system is shot too (platelets are at 54 and blood is really yuck) and I didn't have any side effects. I have liver disease and diabetes as well, so if anyone should have gotten sick, it would have been me. But other than a "poke mark" everything was good.

    Hope this calms your fears a little!
