Protect your health by staying up-to-date on important vaccinations. We have an immunization clinic at both of our pharmacies. Save valuable time by bringing your whole family in (especially around flu season!) You can stop by anytime – no appointment necessary. We do recommend, however, calling in advance to make sure we have the vaccines in stock.
Throughout the flu season, you will find us out in the community reminding you that it is time for that annual flu shot! Often, we’ll also be offering them on-site. Flu vaccinations are available at our immunization clinic and are recommended annually for individuals ages 6 months and older. At our locations, we can give flu shots to ages 7 and up.
We offer pneumonia vaccinations daily during our normal business hours for your convenience. This vaccine is recommended for every individual twice during his or her lifetime; 1 before age 65, 1 after age 65. There must be 5 years in between each vaccination. Our pharmacists are always available to provide more information on this vaccination.
We offer this vaccination daily in our pharmacy as well. Shingles is caused by “Varicella Zoster” or most often referred to as “Chicken Pox”. An individual who has had chicken pox or has had the chicken pox vaccine is highly susceptible to shingles. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the shingles vaccine to anyone who is over the age of 60. The newest shingles vaccination is available at our pharmacies to ages 50 and older. It is also good to realize that most insurance companies will cover this vaccination. Our pharmacists are available to answer any questions you may have in regards to the shingles shot.
If you have any questions about our immunization clinic, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Who is eligible for the influenza (flu) vaccine?
Anyone is eligible to receive the vaccine. However, we will not administer vaccine to any individuals who have an allergy to eggs, mercury or a history of Guillain-Barre.
What does it cost to receive a flu shot?
In many cases, it is a preventative benefit and covered by your insurance. We provide direct insurance billing. If the flu vaccine is not a covered benefit, we have many flexible payment options. Prices are charged by each vaccine administered and are tiered by number of participants. There is no additional charge for our on-site nurse and coordinators’ time and expenses. Please contact the pharmacy for more information.
What is Guillain-Barre Syndrome?
About one in 100,000 people per year will develop Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), an illness characterized by fever, nerve damage and muscle weakness. In 1976, vaccination with the swine flu vaccine was associated with getting GBS.
