IMMUNIZATION INFORMATION 2010-2011

The influenza vaccine for this year will be one single injection. This vaccine is a 3 strain combination of:
A/California/7/09 (H1N1)
A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2)
B/Brisbane/60/2008

Three manufacturers make this product:
Afluria© is made by Merck/CSL
Fluvirin© is made by Novartis
Fluzone© is made by sanofi Pasteur

Since it includes the H1N1 strain only 1 shot is needed.
We carry the influenza vaccine this year, and our pharmacists will be able to give anyone over 19 years old the vaccination.

The price for our shot is $30.00 if you have no insurance.
Often, your insurance will pay for the vaccine, so you must bring your insurance card for us to bill or to call and investigate coverage.

The beauty of pharmacists giving immunizations is that no appointment is needed! You simply walk to the counter and request a shot and hand them your insurance card. It’s THAT easy! No more remembering to come to a clinic, or making an appointment with your doctor’s office.

Your friendly, neighborhood pharmacy is always the place to go to find up-to-date information and helpful hints on health. Why go anyplace else? Go to the place where “everyone knows your name”….your independent drugstore!
