How to get the most from your Zostavax coupon

What is Zostavax and what does it do?

Zostavax is prescribed to prevent shingles in patients. The same virus that causes chickenpox in children is the same virus that causes herpes zoster or shingles. However, the virus only becomes active again in adulthood, particularly for people aged 50 and older, so shingles is more common among adults than amongst younger people. Zostavax is a vaccine, so it works by exposing you to a small dose of the live virus, which causes your body to develop antibodies and so build immunity to the disease. Zostavax will not treat an infection that has already developed; it is for the prevention of shingles. Zostavax is not approved for use by patients younger than 18 years old.

I am a pharmacy technician and I use this app all the time. It is awesome. I'm always trying to help others when they come in with no insurance and are trying to decide whether to get the antibiotics or inhaler.

My husband was between jobs and we had no insurance. Walmart employees told us about SingleCare and it saved us 220.00. I am not kidding! We were floored and so happy. I tell everyone about SingleCare.

Compared to GoodRx, SingleCare is a lot cheaper. My husband and I lost our insurance after 33 years of coverage. Thank you!
