Shingles

Shingrix is a vaccine for adults 50 years and older to prevent shingles.  Shingles is a painful skin rash and 1 in 3 people will get shingles in their lifetime.  It is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. If you’ve had chickenpox, you have the shingles virus inside you already, but it is inactive. As you get older, your immune system weakens, increasing your risk of the virus reactivating as shingles. The only way to reduce the risk of shingles is to get vaccinated.

Whooping Cough

Whooping Cough

Whooping Cough, also know 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.


Pneumococcal

Pneumococcal

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.


Influenza

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.

The CDC recommends getting a flu shot as soon as the vaccine is available; however, even as late as January the vaccination can help protect against the flu.

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.


Meningococcal

Meningococcal

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. Persons 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 and Hepatitis B

Hepatitis A and Hepatitis 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.


Gardasil™

Gardasil™

Gardasil™ is a vaccine that helps protect against some cervical cancers caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). It is important that all three doses are received so full benefits are achieved.
