Gone are the days of waiting for your doctor to squeeze you in to get a flu shot or other necessary vaccination. Pennsylvania now allows pharmacists to administer vaccinations, and usually you can just walk right in and get your vaccination that day. More importantly, Spartan Pharmacy is registered with the PA State IIAS immunization monitoring program so that every vaccination that you receive is properly documented and tracked by the state so that ALL doctors and healthcare professionals can look up your vaccination records on a single database. This is something that many practices are still failing to comply with.
Routine adult vaccinations are offered everyday at Spartan Pharmacy. We currently have on hand a variety of common vaccines. Please ask the pharmacist if you have any questions regarding routine adult vaccination.
What we normally carry:
Who: All persons greater than 6 months old should receive their flu shot. Any person over the age of 9 can receive this vaccine at the pharmacy.
When: Flu vaccines are generally offered yearly from October – January
Why: Help reduce the spread and severity of this highly contagious disease
How often: You should receive your flu shot every year as the contents of the vaccine are changed each year to adjust to a rapidly changing virus.
Who: Pregnant women and any adult that has not received a Tdap dose previously
When: Year Round
Why: To reduce the risk of spreading whooping cough and contracting tetanus
How often: Tetanus boosters are given every 10 years. If you haven’t received a dose of Tdap previously you should receive Tdap instead of Td. It is also recommended for any person in close contact with newborns and infants regardless of time of last tetanus booster.
Who: Persons over 65 or people under 65 with certain medical conditions
When: Year Round
Why: To help reduce the risk of certain types of pneumonia
How often: 1 dose at 65 and a possible 2nd dose a year later.
Who: Any healthy person over the age of 50
When: Year Round
Why: As we age we are at increased risk of developing shingles and/or post herpetic neuralgia (PHN). Shingirx has been shown to significantly reduce this risk.
How often: Shingrix is a 2 dose series. The first dose is given anytime followed by a 2nd dose 2-6 months later
