VUMERITY is not available at your local pharmacy or standard mail order service, but you don’t have to go out of your way to get it. Your healthcare provider's office and your insurance company will work together to order it from a specialty pharmacy. This type of pharmacy carries medicines that need special handling or storage. Once an order is placed on your behalf, it is shipped directly to you.
