At McDowell's, we offer pneumonia, influenza (seasonal) and shingles vaccines to ensure your health year-round.
We offer pneumonia vaccines year-round (Prevnar13 and Pneumovax23). It is recommended that most adults 65 and older receive Pneumovax23. Prevnar13 may be indicated for specific patients. Ask your doctor or pharmacist whether you are a candidate for these two pneumonia vaccines. No prescription or appointment required
We offer influenza vaccines from September to May. This vaccine is typically $0 with most insurance plans. No prescription or appointment required! Protect yourself and your family and make sure to get a flu shot every year.
There is a new shingles vaccine on the market called Shingrix that, per clinical studies, is almost 97% effective. This vaccine is recommended for most adults 50 and older (even if you have previously had the Zostavax shingles vaccine). Ask your doctor or pharmacist whether you are a candidate for this vaccine.
Children and preteens should get five doses of DTaP vaccine and a Tdap vaccine booster. Pregnant women should get one dose of Tdap vaccine every pregnancy, preferably early in the 3rd trimester. Adults should get one dose of Tdap or Td every 10 years. Adults who have never received Tdap should get it in place of a Td dose.
