Comment from: Gary Mc, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: April 30

I received a pneumonia vaccine at 10:30 AM and at 9:30 PM I had 100.3 degrees fever and felt cruddy. I'm 58 and consider it worth it because I had pneumonia when I was about 25. I spent a couple of days in a hospital reminding myself to breathe every 3 or 4 seconds. Not somewhere I ever want to be again.
