My husband (58 in 3 months) got his a couple of weeks ago at Costco for $174 total.

In TX you don't need a prescription to have a flu or shingles shot.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

equiping all stores with these special freezers cost money-cvs has 8000 stores. now they usually have 1 store in a metropolitan area that has the freezer.

walgreens and Rite aid have decided to equip all stores with the special freezers-cvs has not
Thanks for the information.

I get my meds at CVS/Caremark. I was able to get a flu shot at my CVS, but I had to go to Walgreen's to get a Shingles shot.

By the way, I attended the funeral for a retired co-worker a couple of weeks ago. His widow said that the cause of death was Shingles. This surprised me because I thought Shingles could make you wish you were dead, but would not kill you.
