Flu, Pneumonia & Shingles Immunizations

Take care Pharmacy offers all three immunizations that New Jersey law allows pharmacists to administer. These immunizations include the seasonal flu vaccine, the pneumonia vaccine and the shingles vaccine. You will find that our out-of-pocket prices for all of our shots are competitive if your insurance does not cover the cost of the vaccination. For some, insurance only covers a vaccination in your doctor’s office, but for those customers, we suggest you consider what your office visit co-pay would be versus the convenience of just stopping in at Take Care Pharmacy for your shot. Why get your vaccination out in the middle of the produce aisle of a grocery store? We offer a private consultation area to administer vaccinations.

Flu Shots (Seasonal Flu Vaccination)

Patients 18 years and older can get vaccinated for the seasonal flu by a Take Care Pharmacy pharmacist right in the pharmacy. While flu season varies from year to year, it usually starts as early as August and can run through early spring. It is generally recommended that everyone get immunized against the seasonal flu. No prescription is required.

NO APPOINTMENT OR PRESCRIPTION IS NEEDED FOR A FLU SHOT

Pneumonia Vaccine

All adults that qualify for the pneumonia vaccination can get vaccinated by a Take Care Pharmacy pharmacist right in the pharmacy. It is currently recommended that all adults aged 65 and older get a one-time vaccination, as well as persons who are 2 years and older and at high risk for disease (for example, persons with sickle cell disease, HIV infection or other conditions that compromise the immune system). Pneumonia shots are also recommended for adults who smoke cigarettes or who have asthma and are between 19 and 64 years of age
