After waiting 6 months we finally got our first shingrix shot this morning at our doctors office. The waiting period at our local pharmacy is still around 6 months.
The total *absurd* cost for us is a total of $800 each [$1600 total for the two of us ] for the 2 shots with not much hope of recouping much of it from our medical insurance.
But given the experience of some of some of our family members with the disease we're willing to absorb the cost.
Needless to say I think the cost for this is ridiculous.

Wow, just wow! Both on the long wait and on the high cost!

Do you have Medicare Part D?

Did you have the shot at the doctor's office or at a pharmacy?

That's nuts! I don't think the vaccine actually costs that much. Are you sure the doc isn't "sticking" it to you? If the shot is administered in a doc's office there is no coverage from Medicare. Sounds like the doc is charging $$$ for the shot and $$$ for an office visit. At the pharmacy it is covered under Part D (with various co-pays). Your coverage may vary.
