I am so sorry because I sure know how painful that arthritis is. I don't know enough about it yet but it looks like you might need to space vacs. out further from each other. Something to do with your immune system and what reaction it has to vacs. past the first one.

yeah mine was 6 mons apart, it still went to all sore jnts, but I had to hold off on my weekly injection because it lowers your immune system, that was really tough, but better then getting pneumonia. It took approx 2 weeks to subside. Good luck

Owch! Well, hopefully they can figure out why some have reactions and fine tune the vacs. to the point where we can be relieved of this sort of result.
Good luck to you also!

It may not be the vaccine itself it may be the additives. Prevnar 23 is typically recommended for adults, however, Prevnar 13 is also given to adults.

This from the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/additives.htm(download the PDF):
Pneumococcal (PPSV-23 – Pneumovax)contains: Phenol

Pneumococcal (PCV13 – Prevnar 13) contains: :soy peptone broth, casamino acids and yeast extract-based medium, CRM197 carrier protein, polysorbate 80, succinate buffer, aluminum phosphate
Typically this is given to children at 2/4/6 months and 12-15 months.

Yes, additives were suspect too. I just have not talked to enough people or read enough to really have an idea yet. I did notice that one additive was something I am allergic to. But that would cause an allergic reaction. This seems more like immune response. I wonder if some of the additives would be harder on children with their weight difference? Anyway interesting subject, knowledge is key.
