Zostavax Coupons and Discounts

Zostavax is a live vaccine given to elderly adults to prevent shingles. Many times, it's administered by the primary care provider, but in some cases it may also be administered by pharmacists or similar medical personnel. Unfortunately, because of the tier it's been assigned by most Medicare Part D providers, the cost of Zostavax vaccinations is expensive -- often $200 or more. Fortunately, we offer a free savings card and coupon for Zostavax that help reduce the price by as much as 75%. To find out more about our offers, a manufacturer coupon, rebate, or Zostavax itself, see the sections below.

Zostavax Information

Read information about Zostavax below to learn about its common uses. If you have questions about this medicine, please consult with your doctor or pharmacist and be sure to inform them of all the medications you are currently taking.

  Zostavax Uses

Zostavax Uses:
This medication is a live vaccine, meaning it contains a small dose of a live virus intended to stimulate the patient's immune system into developing a resistance. This can be extremely important because the shingles virus is the same virus that causes chicken pox in children, meaning a large part of the elderly population can be at risk for herpes zoster (shingles). While the primary symptoms of shingles includes rash and excruciating pain, it can escalate into blindness, pneumonia, encephalitis, and death. Zostavax is administered as one subcutaneous injection, although your doctor may advise a booster shot. If you experience an allergic reaction to the first shot, you should not have the booster shot.

  Zostavax Side Effects

Zostavax Side Effects:
Common side effects include headache or irritation at the injection site, which may present as warmth or redness, swelling, pain, itching, or bruising. Some side effects can be severe, including: allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, hives, swelling in the face or lips, swelling in the tongue or throat), fever, flu-like symptoms, sore throat, severe rash with burning or pain, breathing problems, swollen glands. If you have any serious side effects, tell your doctor right away.
