Second Shingles Vaccine

Aloha Everyone,

We were cautioned that usually after the second shingles vaccine, one might have a slight fever, overall body aches and pain.

After answering routine questions, we each paid $186.91 and the pharmacist administered the vaccine. No immediate reaction but after our lunch, J.J. and I both felt lethargic with overall body aches. Fortunately, I only had to take one Tylenol tablet and went to bed for a nap with no further pains or discomfort.

We each received four packages of BINAXNOW COVID-19 Home Test Kit. Each box contains two.They are issued by Medicare and individual boxes have printed labels with for example, my name, my address, DOB. Cash value stamped states $79.52 each with a notation, patient pays $0.00.

The pharmacist actually came over to talk to us to inquire if we have any questions regarding their usage. Receiving these 8 boxes of test kits for the two of us was totally unexpected.

Aloha -- Cathi
