If your a vet, the VA pesters you until you give in. Call your local VA clinic or hospital to get one. No matter what your priority is, they are free I believe.

Doctor gave me a prescription for Acyclovir an antiviral that shortens the term of the shingles and lessens chance of complications.
100 capsules to take in 5 days! Yes that is 4 pills 5 times a day. The area affected is on my lower left back and it feels like somebody
hit you with a board and same pain around left side of stomach area. Of course I also have the prickly pain from rash area that comes and goes.

I was going to get the newest vaccination back last Fall but they were out of stock at several locations. Will get it when this heals up per Doc's
orders.
Meanwhile I took Buster to the vet and he got a shot to ease his gut problems and a couple pills he needs to have.
Got him to eat a small bit of chicken and rice.
His pills are on one side of table and mine on the other....hope I don't mix them up!
We a couple of sick pups!!

Thanks for all of your concerns and wishes!

.
Wife and I finally got to the pharmacy in time to get the first Shingrix vaccine today. Been trying for over a year. We call and they have it, we get there and they are out (no waiting list - first come first served). The pharmacy had gotten their allocation of 6 vaccines yesterday. So we were fortunate they still had it today. Medicare did not fully cover. I guess we hadn't yet fully met our Part D deductibles. Her copay was about $42 and mine was about $168.

I got my second dose at the local clinic a few months ago, I was on the waiting list and it still took almost 6 months to get the second dose.
