Are you protected against shingles?
Hartzell’s Pharmacy Vaccine Clinic has been protecting patients against shingles since 2007, one of the first pharmacy locations in the state. Receiving the shingles vaccine can help reduce your chance of developing shingles. Zostavax, the shingles vaccine, is approved for use in individuals 50 years of age and older.
Shingles can be a painful, blistering rash.
Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once you have had chickenpox, the virus stays in your body and can resurface as Shingles. The Shingles rash usually lasts up to 30 days, and for most the pain lessens as the rash heals. But some people who develop Shingles experience long-term nerve pain that can last for months, even years.
ZOSTAVAX is a vaccine that can help prevent Shingles in adults 50 years of age or older.
ZOSTAVAX is given as a single shot. ZOSTAVAX cannot be used to treat Shingles, or the nerve pain that may follow Shingles, once you have it.
If you are interested in receiving the shingles vaccine, please contact the pharmacy or email us at email@example.com to get further information. More information can also be found at www.zostavax.com. The current Vaccine Information Statement, or VIS, can be accessed here (published 10/06/2009).

The FLU Ends with U. Learn more: www.flu.gov
It’s that time of year again! Fall is right around the corner and it’s time to starting thinking about protecting ourselves from the flu. Getting vaccinated against influenza, or the flu is it is more commonly called, is the only proven way to prevent influenza.
Hartzell’s Pharmacy Vaccine Clinic will be providing three influenza vaccines this fall – the flu shot, the nasal flu vaccine (FluMist), and Fluzone High Dose or HD.
- Inactivated influenza vaccine or the “Flu” shot – this vaccine is recommended for all individuals 6 months of age and older. Vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of severe influenza and their close contacts, including healthcare personnel and close contacts of children younger than 6 months.
- FluMist or the nasal flu vaccine – this vaccine is recommended for all healthy individuals 2 to 49 years of age. FluMist is the only non-injectable form of the flu vaccine and has been shown to reduce the incidence of ear (otitis media) infections in children.
- Fluzone High Dose or HD – this vaccine is especially designed for individuals 65 years of age and older. It is a more concentrated inactivated influenza vaccine that offers superior protection against the flu for older individuals verse the regular inactivated “flu shot”.
