    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Only your doctor can answer that question. My doctor never mention re-vaccination since my diagnosis.

    I've had my shots up-dated since diagnosis with Type 2. I recently had a DPT booster shot since daughter-in-law was expecting and I've also had the shingles shot. It's the same doctor that treats my Type 2. It's always best to ask.
