What vaccines can I get discounts on?

Cropped SingleCare logo By | October 22, 2019

You need different vaccinations at different stages of your life, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Immunizations can protect you against common viral infections like chicken pox. Or, they can protect against conditions you’re unlikely to encounter in daily life in the United States, but might be exposed to on vacation, such as cholera or typhoid.

Hepatitis, haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) disease, human papillomavirus (HPV), polio, meningitis. These are just a few illnesses that are easily preventable with a vaccine, that pose serious health risks without one. If you’re behind on your immunization schedule, or planning a trip, SingleCare can help save you money on many common vaccines. The exact savings vary by location, so always check singlecare.com for the most up-to-date price.
