Oops, I misread your post, AL, my apologies. From everything I hear, shingles is something that is definitely to be avoided at all costs.

Shingles is not to be messed with EVER

I didn't realize the old one was only 60% effective. 90% is really impressive!

he recommended getting it at a pharmacy; I assumed maybe pharmacies are higher priority for the supply than doctor's offices?

From what Aetna my Part D provider said, Medicare Part A or Part B will not pay for the two shots of Shingrix if you get them in a Doctor's office but they are paid as a high tier drug in Medicare Part D plans if you get the shots at a pharmacy.

I don't know about other insurance like BlueCross/BlueShield or Kaiser coverage and if this is true for them.

Blue Cross pays 100 percent if you're over 60.

I checked at King Soopers today while I was grocery shopping. No vaccine. No idea when they will.

I checked with the Pharmacy in King Soopers ad the nice girl working the Drop-Off counter told me to hold onto the prescription and MAYBE call in March.

sounds like it is time to just cool our jets and wait.

SHINGRIX: Supply Update
The accelerated adoption of SHINGRIX has led to an unprecedented level of demand.

That was my reaction as well, Wily. I figure the previous shot afforded me the luxury of waiting for a better supply channel to be established.

Given the measles concern, I am also being titered for immunity to that. I certainly don't remember whether I had that inoculation when I was 10!

My money is on that you did. It was pretty much automatic in those days. We got them at school.

I've had shingles three times. Can't begin to describe the agony. PRAYING for the new vaccine to become available. I'm on several waiting lists.
