Vaccines & Immunization
Don't risk your life and the lives of the ones you love. Shield yourself and your loved ones from the flu and other preventable diseases with a vaccine administered by your trusted pharmacist.
Flu vaccines and many other vaccines are covered by most insurance companies.
Talk to your pharmacist to make sure you are up-to-date on all your vaccines.
Common influenza causes fever, sore throat, cough, chills, headache, and muscle aches. Each year
in the U.S., more than 114,000 people are hospitalized and about 36,000 die because of influenza
The best time to get your flu shot is in October or November, before the height of the annual flu
season; however, even as late as January, vaccination can help protect against the flu.
Flu vaccination is especially important for adults aged 50 or more, and adults with health conditions such
as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and other chronic illnesses. However, regardless of age, a yearly
flu shot is recommended for almost everyone.
Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, affects the respiratory tract causing excessive coughing fits that can disturb normal breathing. This disease might at first seem to be a regular cold, but can last for weeks or months without a health-care professional realizing that the symptoms are due to pertussis.
Unfortunately, too many adults forget their booster vaccinations and let their protection run out. The TDAP booster helps protect against whooping cough. For more information, talk to our Pharmacist.
Shingles is a rash that is usually on one side of the body. The rash will often blister, can last up to 30 days and be painful. The shingles vaccine works by helping your immune system protect you from getting shingles and the associated pain and other serious complications.

Pneumococcal disease can result in serious, sometimes fatal infections of the lungs (pneumonia), the blood (bacteremia) and the brain (meningitis).
You can protect yourself from this disease with the pneumococcal vaccine which can be administered at any time of the year and provides long-term protection against the disease.
The meningococcal bacteria is a relatively rare but potentially fatal disease that causes meningitis which affects the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Infection can progress to death within 24 to 48 hours, or lead to permanent disabilities such as hearing loss, brain damage, or loss of limbs. It is spread through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions. People who live or work in close quarters with others such as college students, as well as those traveling to endemic regions, should consider the vaccine.
Hepatitis A & B
Hepatitis A is a liver disease which can cause nausea, vomiting, and a number of more serious symptoms. It is spread by the consumption of contaminated food or water, and through occupational or personal contact with infected animals and humans. It is not a lifelong disease.
Hepatitis B is a serious viral disease which attacks the liver. The hepatitis B virus can cause damage, liver cancer, and possible death. Hepatitis B is spread through contact with blood or body fluids.
