Red Cross Pharmacy
wants our patients to be as healthy as they can be, which is why we offer ImmuneCare.
ImmuneCare provides a variety of immunizations to help you do just that.
Our immunizations include:
- Zostavax (Shingles)
- Hepatitis B
Ask a pharmacist about ANY vaccine you may need.
We also provide on-site flu shot clinics for businesses.
Facts about immunizations:
All vaccines must be licensed and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before being used in the United States, and a vaccine must go through extensive testing to show that it works and that it is safe before the FDA will approve it.
Help prevent Shingles with Zostavax, the Shingles vaccine. If you’ve ever had chickenpox, you could get Shingles now. The same virus that causes chickenpox also causes Shingles. The virus stays in your body and can later resurface as Shingles—a painful, blistering rash.
During most influenza seasons, an average of 5-20% of the U.S. population is infected with seasonal influenza virus. Seasonal influenza immunization can reduce visits to the doctor’s office, lost work or school days, and reduce antibiotic use.
Each year on average in the U.S., more than 50,000 adults die from vaccine-preventable diseases or their complications.
