Do you know you can receive vaccines from your primary care provider (PCP) or a pharmacy in the Vaccine Network?
As a part of your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) prescription drug benefit, you and your covered family members can get selected vaccinations at participating pharmacies.*
The following vaccines may be covered at a pharmacy in the Pharmacy Vaccine Network:
- Zostavax (minimum age 50)
- Hepatitis B
- T Dap
Other vaccines may be available through your primary care physician. Call customer service at the number on your member ID card for more information.

Before You Go
Call the Vaccine Network pharmacy location you plan to go to for complete details. Before you go, find out:
- If the location participates in the network
- If the location has a supply of the vaccine
- The hours that vaccines are given
- If an appointment is needed
Remember to hand your ID card to the pharmacist when you visit a Vaccine Network pharmacy to get a vaccination. The pharmacist will submit a claim and collect any copayments, if necessary.
