Immunization Update

White Cross Pharmacy staff have been busy helping protect people from disease. We have completed the 2-shot Shingrix Shingles vaccine series for over 70 people at this point. This vaccine is nearly 100% effective in preventing shingles cases and much more effective than the previous live vaccine. We are also stocked with MMR vaccine. This vaccine covers Measles. Several regions of the country have experienced large outbreaks of measles this year and 2 cases have now been confirmed in the Idaho panhandle. As usual, pneumonia vaccines are available and a new flu shot will be out in late August or early September. Ask our staff if you have any questions.
