Immunizations & Vaccinations
Flu - With more than 200,000 people in the U.S. hospitalized from flu complications, it is highly recommended by the CDC to get vaccinated each year; especially individuals who are elderly, children, pregnant, and those who may have weakened immune systems.
Tdap - This combination vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). Tdap is a highly effective vaccination recommended by the CDC for pre-teens and young adults as they may be carriers and transmit these viruses to younger children.
Pneumonia - Can be prevented! While following good hygiene practices are always encouraged, getting the Pneumococcal vaccine can significantly decrease your chances of contracting pneumonia.
Shingles - In scientific studies, the shingles vaccine (Zostavax) reduces the risk of developing shingles by about 50%. If you are over the age of 50, the shingles vaccine may even help prevent a recurrence. The CDC recommends a single dose of the vaccine in individuals 60 and older, even if they have previously had an outbreak.
Various travel vaccines - Available upon request.
