We offer a wide array of vaccinations
Tdap is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). Tdap is an inactive vaccine, which means it is made using dead bacteria. The dead germs cannot make you sick.
The CDC recommends the Tdap vaccine for all adults ages 19 and older, especially:
The hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for all children between 12 months and 18 years of age living in the United States. It is also recommended for others who are considered to be at increased risk of infection, including: those traveling to countries with moderate or high rates of hepatitis A. The shot is given in 2 doses -- adults get each dose 6 to 18 months apart. The vaccine does not contain any live viruses and cannot cause hepatitis B disease.
All adults ages 19 through 59 years, and 60 years and older with risk factors for hepatitis B should get this vaccine. The vaccine is given in 3 doses. The second dose is given 1 month after the first dose, followed by a third dose 6 months after the second dose. The vaccine does not contain any live viruses, and cannot cause hepatitis B disease.
Shingles is a painful, blistering rash caused by the reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox. After a patient has had chickenpox, the virus can lie dormant in the nerves and become active again if the immune system weakens.
Shingrix is a new adjuvanted, non-living recombinant shingles vaccine. Two doses of Shingrix provides more than 90% protection against shingles and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the most common complication of shingles. Adults 50 years and older should get two doses of Shingrix, separated by 2 to 6 months. Adults 19 years and older who have or will have weakened immune systems because of disease or therapy should also get two doses of Shingrix.
The RSV vaccine can prevent lower respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). RSV is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. The CDC recommends adults 60 years of age and older have the option to receive a single dose of RSV vaccine, based on discussions between the patient and their health care provider. Adults at higher risks for severe RSV disease include older adults, adults with chronic medical conditions such as heart or lung disease, weakened immune systems, or certain other underlying medical conditions, or who live in nursing homes o long-term case facilities. This vaccine does not contains any live virus so it cannot give you the RSV infection. Because a single dose is thought to give protection for at least two years, it is recommended that older adults get the RSV vaccine before RSV season, which is typically from October to May. We carry both Arexvy and ABRYSVO vaccines.

Vaccinations & Immunizations
There are many things we want to pass on to our loved ones. Illness is not one of them.
You want to pass on certain things like family traditions, a grandmother's quilt or a dad's love of books, but no one wants to pass on a serious illness. Take charge of your health and help protect those around you by asking about vaccines at your next doctor's visit.
Vaccinating our children is commonplace in the United States. But few adults know they need vaccines, and even fewer are fully vaccinated. Only 24 percent of adults ages 60 and older have received a shingles vaccine and only 17 percent of adults older than 19 have received a Tdap vaccine. Are you one of the millions of adults not aware of the vaccines you need?
Each year, tens of thousands of adults needlessly suffer, are hospitalized, and even die as a result of diseases that could be prevented by vaccines. However, a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) survey showed that most U.S. adults are not even aware that they need vaccines throughout their lives to protect against diseases like pertussis, hepatitis, shingles, and pneumococcal disease.
To put the benefit of vaccinations into perspective, the estimated number of influenza-associated illnesses prevented by flu vaccination during the 2015-2016 flu season was nearly 5.1 million, or slightly more than the population of the state of Colorado. Further, the estimated number of flu-associated medical visits prevented by vaccination during the 2015-2016 season was nearly 2.6 million, or the equivalent to the passengers of 765 Carnival cruise ships. And finally, the estimated number of flu hospitalizations prevented during the 2015-2016 season was nearly 75,000, or slightly less than Giants Stadium at full capacity.
Not only can vaccine-preventable diseases make you very sick, but if you get sick, you may risk spreading certain diseases to others. That's a risk most of us do not want to take. Infants, older adults and people with weakened immune systems (like those undergoing cancer treatment) are especially vulnerable to infectious diseases. They are also more likely to have severe illness and complications if they do get sick. You can help protect your health and the health of your loved ones by getting your recommended vaccines.
The good news is that getting vaccinated is easier than you think. Adults ages 18 and up can get vaccines at Seybridge Pharmacy. Most health insurance plans cover the cost of recommended vaccines.
