If you have been on Facebook lately, it is easy to see that the annual cold and flu period has hit Stark County, Ohio and Tuscarawas County, Ohio! And it is taking everyone in the house by storm! Once one person gets sick, you can be sure the rest of the house is sure to follow! But what is there to do about seasonal illnesses? Accept them as a fact of life and try your best to stay clear of everyone who has come in contact with a virus? That doesn’t seem like a realistic approach… Luckily, there is one way you can prepare yourself and it is with pharmacy immunizations from Medicine Center Pharmacy. With shingles shots, pneumonia vaccines and more, Medicine Center can help protect locals against some of the most irritating illnesses. With four convenient locations in Canton, Ohio; Louisville, Ohio; New Philadelphia, Ohio; and Minerva, Ohio…an ounce of prevention is just around the corner!
This year’s pharmacy immunizations will not only protect against the flu, but a few other conditions that are expected to be passed around this fall and winter. If you are wondering if you need a new shot since you already got one last year, the answer is yes! The Medicine Center Pharmacy suggests a flu shot every year for two reasons. Number one is that each year, new flu vaccines are released in line with the new flu viruses. These viruses are different from year to year. So, a flu shot from last year might not be able to prepare you for flu season. Another reason is that the flu vaccine weakens over time and might not be as effective over a year’s period!
Okay, the next question the Medicine Center often hears is, “I am pretty healthy. I thought shingles shots and pneumonia vaccines were just for children and older people. Do I really need them?” The answer is that it wouldn’t be a bad idea. While a shingles vaccine is recommended for those 60 and older and the pneumonia shot is recommended for people 65+ or under 2, pharmacy immunizations are the most effective way to protect yourself against seasonal illnesses that can leave you bedridden.
And the Medicine Center Pharmacy makes it easy to do just that! If an illness has already invaded your Stark County or Tuscarawas County home, never fear! The same pharmacy that offers you protection from these conditions can offer you the tools to cope with them as well! And with a pharmacy that delivers around the Canton, Louisville, Minerva, and New Philadelphia areas (certain restrictions apply), staying at home and not spreading the “love” is a comforting option to you and those who want to stay clear of your germs.
The best part about getting any of these pharmacy immunizations is that the Medicine Center Pharmacy offers these shingles shots and pneumonia vaccines during normal business hours. No appointment is needed and you can walk into any of the four convenient locations in the Stark County, Ohio or Tuscarawas County, Ohio areas to prepare for flu season, protect against shingles, or prevent pneumonia within minutes. It’s that convenient! For more information on how you can avoid seasonal illnesses, visit the Medicine Center online at www.MedShopRX.com for more information.
