Flu season has arrived! Stop in today and protect yourself and your family! **No appointment necessary
Our Pharmacists are licensed to administer the following vaccines to anyone 18 years and over:
- Flumist (ages 2-49 are eligible. We can administer to those 18 and older)
Who should get a flu shot?
The FDA recommends that everyone 6 months and over should get a flu vaccine; the only exception is for those who are allergic to the vaccine. It is especially important for the following groups, who are at risk for complications from the flu:
- People who are 50 or more years of age
- People who are 6 to 49 months of age
- People who have chronic lung disease, including asthma and COPD, or heart disease
- People who are 18 years old or younger AND taking long-term aspirin therapy
- People who have sickle cell anemia or other hemoglobin-related disorders
- People who have kidney disease, anemia, diabetes, or chronic liver disease
- People who have a weakened immune system (including those with cancer or HIV/AIDS)
- People who receive long-term treatment with steroids for any condition
- Women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during the flu season. Women who are pregnant should receive only the inactivated flu vaccine. (Vaccinations should usually be given after the first trimester. Exceptions may be women who are in their first trimester during flu season, because their risk from complications of the flu is higher than any theoretical risk to the baby from the vaccine.)
The vaccine takes approximately two weeks to fully protect against prevalent flu strains.
