Travel Vaccines are now available; no prescriptions needed

Planning on traveling to Africa, Central America or South America? Before jetting off, make sure you are up to date on routine vaccinations. Depending on where you are traveling, you may also need to get certain vaccinations. If you are not sure what vaccinations you need, there’s no need to worry. We’ve got you covered.  We will review your travel plans and make recommendations based on your plans.

Receiving vaccinations prior to your trip will help keep you and your family safe and healthy while traveling. Knowing you are protected from diseases like hepatitis, yellow fever and typhoid will give you peace of mind so you can spend your time enjoying yourself.

It’s important to get vaccinated at least four to six weeks before you travel. This will give the vaccines time to start working and help ensure you are fully protected while you’re traveling.  No prescrptions are needed for travel vaccinations.

Speak to a staff member today about the travel immunizations we offer and how we can prevent you from bringing home unintended souvenirs.

Are e-cigarettes safe ?

Smoking electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) has quickly become a popular source for nicotine. Many use e-cigs as a safe way to quit smoking cigarettes. However, the long-term effects of e-cigs are still unknown. E-cigs contain nicotine, propylene glycol or glycerin, and different flavorings. There have been reports of quitting success with e-cigs, but they should not be considered “safe”. E-cigs can cause acute lung disease, atrial fibrillation, and nicotine poisoning. Studies reporting long-term effects of e-cigs on users are needed.

Eating a balanced diet

Eating a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and veggies can help keep you healthy and lower

your risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. Only 1 in 10

adults eat the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables daily. The Centers for Disease

Control recommends that adults eat 1.5-2 cups of fruit and 2-3 cups of vegetables daily. Try

adding a side of fruit or veggies to all of your meals!

When is the last time you tested your smoke detector ?

When’s the last time you tested your smoke detector? Although we hope we never need to use

smoke detectors, it is very important that we make sure the detectors are working in case of an

emergency. It is estimated that 3 out of every 5 deaths from home fires are linked to fires with

home with no smoke alarms or no working alarms. You should test your smoke detectors once a

month by pressing the test button. All smoke detectors should be linked so that once one alarm

sounds, all alarms sound.

Flu Vaccine is here ! Stop in today to get your vaccine

Flu vaccine time is around the corner… it is important to make sure you are protected.

The influenza vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months, but is especially important for those:

  • Age 65 or older
  • Pregnant women
  • People with certain conditions (diabetes, asthma, lung disease) who are at higher risk for serious complications
  • People who care for the elderly or others at higher risk for serious complications

Vaccination is recommended as soon as possible to make sure your body has time to produce antibodies against the influenza virus. It takes approximately two weeks for your body to build up protection.

Two vaccines are available at Sand Run Pharmacy.  The traditional “flu shot” is available and recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months. This is an inactivated virus that provides protection with less risk of side effects. Although you cannot get the flu from this vaccine, side effects can occur and include:

  • Soreness, redness, swelling at the injection site
  • Low grade fever
  • Aches

Although the influenza vaccine is recommended for everyone over  the age of 6 months, there are some individuals who should not receive the vaccine. This includes individuals:

  • With a severe egg allergy
  • Who have had a serious allergic reaction to the flu vaccine in the past
  • Who are currently ill with a fever (they should wait until they recover)
  • With a history of Guillain–Barré Syndrome

These individuals should consult their physician prior to receiving the vaccine.

At Sand Run Pharmacy, we are able to vaccinate patients age 14 and above. We accept most major insurances and offer affordable prices for those whose insurance does not cover the vaccine. Walk ins are welcome! If you have any questions, please call us at (330) 864-2138.

Getting enough calcium and vitamin D ?

Are you getting enough Calcium and Vitamin D? Vitamin D and Calcium are important components in maintaining strong, healthy bones. Calcium helps to build strong bones and Vitamin D is needed to help your body absorb calcium from your diet. Dairy products are a great source of calcium. Anyone 50 or older needs 800-1000 IU of Vitamin D daily. Women under 50 and men under 70 years need 1000mg of calcium daily. Women over 50 and men over 70 need 1200mg of calcium daily. If you aren’t getting enough, you may need to take a daily supplement.
