Is it safe to have the shingles vaccine 2 months after a facelift?

I had the shingles vaccine 2 months after a facelift. I have pain and tenderness in my entire face and eyes with prickling and pulling. Could it nerve damage caused by the shingles vaccine.

I doubt that your symptoms are related to the vaccine, but I would see my Plastic Surgeon for an exam to verify.

Hi Fiona12. I am sorry you are having trouble. It is hard to know if your symptoms are related to the vaccine. I suggest you ask your plastic surgeon.
