Vaccine Shipping

Due to circumstances beyond our control and ever-changing weather conditions, we require vaccines to be shipped in an insulated container year-round. This insulated container helps protect your vaccine investment from freezing during the winter months and getting too warm during the non-winter months. Frozen cold packs are included in your insulated container. Don't be alarmed if frozen cold packs are thawed when you receive your shipment; this is normal. Simply refrigerate vaccines as soon as they arrive. Vaccines and other items requiring refrigeration are non-returnable.

A $4.95 charge will be added to all vaccine orders for the insulated container/frozen cold packs.

We recommend ordering vaccines as early in the week as possible to assure delivery by Friday*. Please see the TIME IN-TRANSIT MAP to help estimate the number of days needed to receive your vaccine order.
*Ask for details on UPS Saturday delivery where available.

We will also ship your $75+ vaccine order UPS 2ND DAY AIR for $18.95 or UPS NEXT DAY AIR for $24.95. Please specify when ordering.
