You just drive thru slowly and throw your money out the window.

I haven't seen anything like that since the Renault dealers all closed up! :)

Before I quit drinking I always got shots at the casino. Back in the '70s they gave you shots for free.      :confusion-confused:        Shots,  :unsure:,   Oh you mean vaccinations,    :hide:      never-mind!                  :ychain:

I got my shingles shot several years ago but my GP keeps telling me there is a new one that is two doses and better than the one I got. Each dose is over $200.00 and not covered by Medicare. I think I will take my chances.

We both got our 2 dose shingle shot last year with no charge.   Medicare with Capital Blue supplement paid it all.

 

Also got the flu and pneumonia vaccines at no cost.      Seems the tetanus booster is the one not covered unless it is injury related.

Here in MD, Medicare B does not cover it, but depending upon who you have your supplemental or Part D with, they may cover it. Here is a screen shot from medicare.gov.

My supplemental is Thrivent Financial, and Part D is Express Scripts.

My doctor wanted to charge me a considerable amount for the shingles shot, so I called my Medicare Advantage number.  They said that I needed to go to the participating pharmacy to get it for free.  Always check your plan first.

I think they call that the Turnpike, Ed.

 

With the speeds, the construction, and the traffic it’s a gamble every time you travel.

With no income tax the money has to come from somewhere, right?  You can avoid all these. Here in NY, no escaping income tax.

Oh, we got taxes Don.....income tax, sales tax, school tax, breathing tax, death tax....etc.        I only listed the Pee Aaa money makers that I do not contribute to.

 

Wow, I almost forgot, PeeAaa also has the second highest road use gas tax in the US.
