If you’re over age 50, it’s past time for getting the shingles vaccine. Even if you’ve already had shingles the vaccine may reduce the chances of you getting it again.
Zostavax (the shingles vaccine) contains a diluted chickenpox virus. The shingles vaccine helps boost your immune system to fight disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus, reducing the chance of getting shingles in people aged 50 and older.
Studies show that the shingles vaccine also helps people who develop shingles have shorter periods of nerve pain, which is very painful. The symptoms can last anywhere from 30 days to months or even years after the rash has resolved.
Why wait and take the risk? Stop in today and get YOUR shingles vaccine at Eggleston’s Pharmacy inside Brown’s County Market in both Sycamore and Genoa. Visit Eggleston’s Pharmacy website now to learn more.
