All the local pharmacies have been out of the vaccine for some months. I wonder why.

The vaccine can only be stored for a few days,then it decomposes.Because it can't be warehoused like the flu shots,no one will have much on hand.The local pharmacies have a LONG waiting list for months.

Medicare didn't cover a penny of the several hundred dollar cost.

I felt like I had all severe flu symptoms the weekend I got it.

Even so,it's worth every penny.I had shingles in the eye & don't want it back.It felt like I had ground glass in them.
