Adults and adolescents (ages 11 and over) need vaccinations just as much as children do. That's why our Pharmacy now offers convenient professional immunization services on a walk-in or appointment basis. We can provide you and your family with all the immunizations recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, including:
Flu shots during flu seasonEveryone should be immunized against the flu every year, but it is especially important for those over the age of 50 and for people with chronic diseases to receive their flu shot every year.
PneumococcalSometimes referred to as the “pneumonia” shot, it is recommended for all adults ages 65 or over or any adult with health conditions such as diabetes or lung disease.
MeningococcalThe meningococcal bacteria can cause a relatively rare but potentially fatal disease. Meningococcal vaccination is recommended for college students, those enrolling in the military, and travelers to countries where the disease is endemic.
Gardasil®This vaccination prevents against infection with Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, which can lead to cervical cancer later in life. All girls and women ages 9 to 26 years of age should be vaccinated with a three-dose series of Gardasil®.
Zostavax®Shingles can now be prevented with this new vaccination. Everyone over the age of 60 should receive a Zostavax® vaccination to help prevent the Shingles disorder.
Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis*Tetanus is a severe infection which is not contagious but can be fatal if untreated. It is caused by bacteria which is found virtually everywhere and can enter the bloodstream through a wound. Diphtheria is a contagious disease which spreads through direct contact with an infected person, usually via coughing or sneezing. Like tetanus, it can be fatal if untreated. Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, has become more common in the last five years. Therefore, recommendations have been changed to include a booster dose of pertussis in combination with tetanus and diphtheria in place of your normal every 10-year booster of tetanus. This vaccination is especially important for anyone who will have close contact with infants.
Influenza*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-related illnesses.
Flu vaccination is especially important for adults age 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.
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 life long disease. Hepatitis B is a serious viral disease which attacks the liver. The hepatitis B virus can cause short- and long-term illnesses leading to liver damage, liver cancer, and possible death. Hepatitis B is spread through contact with blood or body fluids. *Some vaccinations may not be available in all locations;
age restrictions do apply. Please check with our pharmacist.
