It's that time of year again... Time to get your annual flu shot! Did you know that flu shots are now available at Medicine Store Pharmacy? We now also offer several other vaccinations, as well. Immunizations are an important part of keeping yourself healthy. You may have questions as to what vaccines you may need. Our pharmacists are specially trained to immunize for flu, pneumonia, shingles, and diptherira/pertussis/tetanus (DPT) and can answer any questions you may have about vaccines. These vaccines may be covered by Medicare, Medicaid or your insurance. Pneumovax is the vaccination we use for pneumococcal lung disease. It is a one-time vaccine for all individuals over 65 or for those 50-65 who have certain chronic medical conditions. Zostavax is to help prevent or lessen the severity of shingles. This one time vaccine is currently recommended for all individuals over the age of 60. Boostrix is the vaccine indicated for active booster immunization against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) for anyone age 65 and older. If you are interested in any of these vaccines, please call the pharmacy so we can schedule an appointment with your pharmacist.
