A) Not the right age. B) Reject science. C) Cannot afford it. D) Never heard of shingles. E) I tried yesterday at a Spokane pharmacy. After establishing that my health insurance did not cover it and that it would cost me $225, I still intended to go ahead and get it. So I filled out some forms and waited. And waited. To be fair, the pharmacy was busy. But after quite a while I was informed that, because I am under 60, they needed to treat it like a prescription. So they had to phone my primary care physician and get his OK. A message had been left with him, but God only knew when he would get back to the pharmacist. So maybe I will go back and get it today. F) Other.
