Vaccines, Immunization & Injection Services
As we age, our immune system naturally weakens, which makes it harder for our bodies to defend themselves against the microscopic pathogens (bacteria and viruses) all around and inside of us. This means that as we age, our risk of becoming seriously ill from pathogens increases. Things we may have been better at fighting off in our youth (influenza [flu], herpes zoster [shingles], respiratory syncytial virus [rsv], pneumococcal bacteria [pneumonia], etc) may now cause serious and sometimes fatal infections. The same can be said about individuals with certain chronic medical conditions like diabetes, COPD, asthma, and heart failure to name a few.
Vaccines are an incredibly safe and effective tool available to us that can help prevent illness. At Medi-Drugs, we believe it is our duty to provide services that best serve our community in living a long and prosperous life. We believe in being there for each of our patients, especially when they need it most, which is why we are available to counsel about, prescribe, and administer numerous different vaccines, both publicly and privately covered by insurance plans.
Medi-Drugs Pharmacy provides comfortable and professional vaccination services at both the Millcreek and Clareview locations.
