 IMMUNIZATION

HOW
IT WORKS

Hi-Rx has partnered with several pharmacies to make sure that we can deliver you the vaccine that you need, and administer it at a place and time of your choosing. 

If you are interested in booking an appointment with us for vaccine administration, please call us at 203-920-4092 so that we can walk you or your physician through the process.

 

To give you an idea of what usually happens:

Your physician orders the Rx and sends it to Hi-Rx and  one of our partner pharmacies.

Hi-Rx calls you to schedule a time & place for your appointment.

You might also receive a call from the pharmacy to verify your insurance information and discuss co-pay, if there is any.

Day of Administration

Hi-Rx picks up the vaccine at the pharmacy and maintains storage requirements while travelling.

Hi-Rx travels to your place of choosing and administers the vaccine.

Keep in mind:

Hi-Rx picks up the vaccine for you.

No need to do anything else other than wait for Hi-Rx!

The flu vaccine is the best way to prevent influenza (flu) which is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. The CDC guidelines state that an annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect yourself against the seasonal flu and reduces the risk of flu illnesses and hospitalizations.

Ask your doctor:

Your physician will need to write a prescription that states the flu vaccine that you need to receive. There are several kinds of flu vaccines depending on your age and/or allergies.
