I haven’t posted in quite a while because I’m in a pissy mood. My life sucks. I have some more pictures of the the chick next door naked that I may post later. I don’t really have much to say because I had a hard day running around.
Washington (AP) People hoping to avoid the excruciating pain of shingles can get a new vaccine if they’re willing to pay for it.
The shingles vaccine called Zostavax hit the market last spring.
But public health specialists say it may go vastly underused because, at 150 dollars a shot, it’s not fully covered by many insurance plans or Medicare.
A vaccine expert at Vanderbilt University says it’s like building a Jaguar and leaving it in the garage.
For patients over 65, Medicare will begin paying for the shingles vaccine in January, but only as a prescription with a copay that varies from plan to plan.
One Medicare official says a trip to the drug store just like with Flu shots could be the simplest way to get Zostavax in the future.
I almost went somewhere, but I forgot. I been feeling kind of down lately.
