Prescription medications can be expensive, and vaccines are no exception. Recommended vaccines like Shingrix and Fluad prevent you from contracting dangerous infections, but they can be pricey. GoodRx is here to help.

But before you head to the pharmacy, know that using GoodRx coupons for vaccines work a bit differently than you may be used to.

Here’s the catch. GoodRx coupons are for the medicine only and do not cover administration fees – such as getting a shot. Here’s what you need to save on your vaccines with a GoodRx coupon.

  1. Get your GoodRx coupon. Just look up the item you want to buy on GoodRx. Then, print, email or text yourself the appropriate coupon. Even better – download our free mobile app which has coupons built right in.
  2. Present your coupon at the pharmacy counter. Instead of administering the vaccine, your pharmacist will give you the package.
  3. Talk to your pharmacist about administrating the vaccine, or take it back to your doctor. Keep in mind that you may need to pay an administration fee to actually get the medicine.

Keep in mind that you will need a prescription, either from your doctor or from your pharmacist. Check with your pharmacist to see if they will be able to provide you with a prescription.
