Protect Yourself from Shingles

Anyone who’s had chickenpox is at risk for developing the shingles virus, which is why it is important to protect yourself.

Shingles can be prevented with the Shingrix (Shingles) vaccine. The vaccine is for adults 50 years and older and it is up to 90% effective. Most insurance plans cover the vaccine. Shingrix is given in a two dose series, with the second shot administered two to six months after the first shot.

Visit Dunewood Pharmacy if your doctor suggested you should have the Shingles vaccine. Walk-ins are welcome, no appointment is needed. Please remember to bring your insurance card.
