Due to an unprecedented consumer demand for Shingrix, this vaccine is being placed on limited supply status by the manufacturer. Sindecuse Health Center occasionally receives small quantities of the vaccine. Community providers are experiencing similar challenges due to the vaccine shortage.
Patients that have previously submitted their prescription for Shingrix, or had it sent in by their primary care provider, may call the clinicial coordinator at (269) 387-3426 to be placed on a waitlist. To join the waiting list for Shingrix, have your prescribing provider send a prescription to the health center. We will schedule your vaccination in the order recieved. If you have already called or scheduled an appointment, there is no need to call again.
